Karaván cheese

Karaván is a smoked Hungarian cow’s milk cheese with a long-standing tradition. It is produced in Repcelak in north-west Hungary by Panontej, which is now owned by a French company.

The cheese is made in a traditional fashion and is smoked without use of artificial ingredients. It is available as a normal cheese and there are also processed varieties which come as a block, in slices or as a cream cheese.

Karaván is the most popular cheese in Hungary and Bosnia-Herzegovina, however, it is more of an eating cheese than a cooking one as it does not melt very well.
