SEIRASS DEL FEN - Hay cheese

The name comes from the Piemontese dialect which means cheese. In fact it is derived from the whey that remains after the production of cheese as the traditional "ricotta".

The shepherds had the need to protect the cheese during transport downstream and wrapped in hay.

Hence the name distinctive.

This dairy product is produced mainly in the valleys of the Waldensian province of Turin.
