Possibly Croatia’s most famous export, Paski Sir is a cheese hailing from the island of Pag, pop. 8,000. Pag is a rocky island with little vegetation, so the local sheep are incredibly hardy, roaming the island to forage for aromatic herbs such as sage. What vegetation there is on the island has a unique taste, as sea salt forms deposits on the rocks and plants. Paski Sir is a hard cheese, a little flaky, with a butterscotchy and salty flavor.
