Hi Ivo- Well, I love food and I LOVE CHEESE! I also work in the service industry. About 10 years ago a work friend of my mothers who is from Bulgaria brought her a brick of Bulgarian feta back from visiting her family and I thought it was so AMAZING. The texture was creamier lending […]

Hi Ivo, Thanks for your email and the book, really appreciate it. Living the last 20 years in Ireland, of course I am missing the Bulgarian food, especially the Bulgarian cheese and yogurt.

Hello Ivo, My mother’s father was Bulgarian and I remember him as a kind and gentle man. His youngest daughter, my aunt, who is still living, had many more fond memories of him. Plus, I love Bulgarian feta cheese and enjoyed kebapche when I had it. And I do want to try more Bulgarian foods […]

Hello Ivo, 5 years ago I went to Bulgaria for a wedding. It’s a beautiful country and my favorite became Shopska Salad! I ate it everyday. When I got back home, I was disappointed that I couldn’t find the sirene cheese. I’ve searched for years and then I found your site. The cheese came today, […]

I love Shopska salad and it’s just not the same with feta cheese. It needs Sirene cheese! By the way, please unsubscribe me from all of your emailings. I get way too much unsolicited email! -Matt

While in Serbia last fall I had Shopska salad. I loved it so much and found that this is a Bulgarian dish with Sirene cheese. I wanted to make it at home, but could not find the cheese locally. (I live in West Central Georgia). I bought the cow, sheep, and goat cheese to try […]

It is very pity that there was no Bosa in the sale now… I am waiting for my order! Thank […]

Hello, The main reason we found you is because we were looking for chubrista for a recipe we want to make. We love to cook foods from different cuisines and have never done Bulgarian. We picked up some cheese and sausage as well to try.

Hi, thanks for replying. I’m interested of buying the kashkaval cheese because I had it before and it’s very nice but my question is that if you supply the red label brand. Kind regards

Dan M.

Hello Ivo, Thank you for your message. I found your online shop by searching the internet for sheep kashkaval of which I am a BIG consumer. As you could see, we live in Sweden. Here the most common dairy products come from cows. Also meat preferences go to beef, pork and of course chicken. All […]

I have traveled to Bulgaria and fell in love with shopska salad. We all ate it everyday. I have been trying to find siren cheese, with no success. Now I have found your website and will be ordering soon. Thank you

Krasimir G.

Hello again 🙂 I have found your website via search engines and social media. As a number one reason I would say quality. I love trying out different products, but I still haven’t found a proper replacement of our locally made rakia, feta cheese or yogurt. Everyone knows that you can’t cook a proper meal […]

Alexandre

Hello Ivo, It is not because of Bulgarian but I found that ARTISAN Kashkaval from Raw Milk, is an excellent cheese. I wonder is your cheese is from raw milk and is not oversalted. Thanks Sincerely Alexandre

Lesley

Hi Ivo Love Bulgarian food, people, country. Reminds of happy holidays in Sveti Vlas. Trying to source Zagorka and milky chewy caramel sweets. Also can you tell me which cheese is used to make shopska salad? Many thanks

Michaela H.

Hello Ivo, Thank you for your email. There is nothing wrong. Everything is fine. I bought products meats, fish, butter and cheese sometime ago, and I still have enough. There is no reason for me to buy more than I need for now. If these products remain for too long in the refrigerator, they may […]

Barbara S.

Your sirene cheese is wonderful. I tried every other similar cheese, recommended in recipes, but was always disappointed. My hubs loves a shopska salad but no matter how I tried, I could not bring back that real taste for him. Until we found you. As you know, many American salads are largely lettuce. We are […]

Ivo, beginning around 1992, I made four trips to Bulgaria to find Bulgarian products that I could import into the US. I tried wine and cheese and even a development project in Varna. Nothing was successful but I made very good friends who cooked wonderful meals for me. That is where I first became acquainted […]

Michael P.

I found your site via a friend who lives in Bulgaria. He was sharing a recipe with me that he loves and we were trying to find the specific cheese for it. Your site has it and I’ve ordered some!

John K.

Thank you for your patience with everything and i will make the other payment. I love Bulgaria their food drink and culture. I go every year to sunny beach. Love shopska salad the white cheese and kvarma stew. Love mystica and the mint liqueur.

Joanna B.

I tried everything and I already made banitsa for the people in my community here. Hope they’ll like the traditional Bulgarian food! Only the lukanka is a bit odd tasting- it’s not bad , but it doesn’t taste like typical one you could buy home. The yoghurt is great, the cheese too. Thank you again for the […]
