This is from Romania

Roman ancestors, the Dracians, lived in a small piece of heaven. Their land with its huge mountains, covered by woods and grasslands was the ideal place to raise sheep.
But so much beauty and richness attracted roman emperors and only mountains and the woods were a refuge in front of invading armies.
Decebal, the king of the Dracians, retired along with his people in the mountains, taking with them the sheep flocks. In the fir-tree woods he taught them how to preserve cheese in fir-tree bark. and how to hide it in caves.

This habit passed along generations and was very much used in Vlad Tepes time, known as DRACULA His cruely and severity made many people take refuge in the mountains around his castle in Bran, and of course cheese in fir-tree bark baskets was the perfect food for them. This way of preserving cheese by burying it is even used today.

Cheese is made only of sheep milk and the basket is made of fir-tree bark boiled in whey in a very specific manner.
This cheese has all the flavor and freshness of the fir-tree woods. It's natural elements assure a longtime health and good shape.
