Schiz is a whole or semi-skimmed cows’ milk cheese which is produced in the province of Belluno. It is product with an ancient rural tradition, which is usually consumed cooked in a pan with butter and salt. The name was probably suggested by its splashing sound during cooking.
It is a rindless, soft, semi-cooked cheese, which is lightly pressed into square moulds, and is salted at the time of consumption. It has a compact, elastic texture and a flavour of sweet milk and is comsumed very fresh.
