On Poland’s southeastern border lies the beautiful Tatra Mountain Range. This is not only one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Poland, it’s also the home of the Polish Highlanders, one of Poland’s most vibrant folkloric communities. Here within the valley of the Tatra’s, for centuries the highlanders have cultivated beautiful traditions around art, music, dance, and cuisine! Perhaps one of the best known culinary aspects of the Highlanders’ tradition are their smoked sheeps’ milk cheeses! Smoked to perfection in shepherd huts called “bacowki” located on the mountain pastures, they are the symbolic food product of this Polish region. Though there’s nothing quite like the experience of enjoying these cheeses along a hike through the Polish mountains, enjoying a small bite at home can at least take us partway there in sentiment and taste!
