Pag island cheese
Not just any dairy product. In fact, it’s the kind that can be made only on the island of Pag, because the environment plays a crucial role in its creation. Namely, the bora wind spreads dry salt dust over native plants such as sage, which then the sheep graze on. The specific aroma enters the milk and cheese as its final product. It’s the most famous Croatian cheese and a true delicacy, whose delicious taste you can’t get enough of.
