Do you have a favorite dish from your childhood? I’m sure, you do. This simple dish is one of my favorites from when I was a kid.
Tulip Festival! What a concept! Americans like to call a variety of events a festival.

Liptauer is a unique, piquant cheese spread made with paprika and caraway. It originates from Central-Europe, more precisely from the region known until 1918 as the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In these days, in Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Northern-Italy, or Serbia – just to name a few geographic locations – there are many variations of this spread, but no authentic recipe leaves out the sheep cheese known as bryndza.
