Cheeses from Paška sirana- when it matters!
Paška sirana je nastala davne 1946. kao mala poljoprivredna zadruga. Njezina povijest usko je povezana s povijesti Republike Hrvatske jer je kroz svoj vijek prolazila kroz razne organizacijske oblike sve do 1992. kada postaje privatna tvrtka koja je okupila stotine otočkih obitelji pod svoj krov. Priča o Paškoj sirani nije priča o poslovnom uspjehu jedne obitelji, priča je to o generacijama mnogih otočkih obitelji koje su zajedno disale slani paški zrak, strepile nad svojim stadima u hladnim zimama i sušnim ljetima, priča o stotinama vrijednih ruku koje su oblikovale sir unoseći u njega čežnju za nekim prošlim vremenim i toplim domaćinstvom. Vizija njezinih vlasnika uspjela je brendirati paški sir i omogućiti stotinama obitelji preživljavanje na ovom škrtom otoku na kojem raste tek aromatično bilje. Danas Paška sirana proizvodi 10 vrsta sireva od ovčjeg i kravljeg mlijeka, zapošljava 85 ljudi, izvozi u SAD i EU. Njezin novi proizvodni pogon nalazi se u gradu Pagu, izgrađen je 2008. u skladu s europskim propisima.
While crystals of Paški sir cheese are melting in your mouth, offering you a real sensation with a fusion of salty and sweet taste with a warm nut note, our skuta cheese is mild, gentle and soft like it wants that its nutritive attributes of super food remain secret for the selected ones…
While every cheesemaker has their own secret of making skuta cheese, our secret is actually in our, traditional recipe and the experience of many generations of island families that we have brought together for 70 years.
Skuta is a delicacy that results with production of Paški sir cheese. While cheese was for shepherds something to sell or exchange, skuta was like a reward after hard work. In cold winters with this taste of home that it has, it evoked memories of childhood and once again confirmed this strong relationship between Pag and production of Paški sir cheese.
Apart from strong emotional connection between Pag and skuta, it was also an ally in keeping health. While the strong wind called bura was devastating Pag’s island landscape, days would ritually begin with black coffee in which pieces of skuta were put…
Skuta is especially good for the regeneration of liver and the regulation of sugar. It contains less than 1 % milk fat, doesn’t contain carbohydrates, but only pure proteins that strengthen the immune system. It is a dietetic product that is also superfood, because of albumine and globuline which contain aliphatic acids needed in diet.
