  • Lamb and Cheese
  • If you are a fan of exceptional juicy meat or a connoisseur of top-notch prized cheese, you will want to stay longer in this area!
    Farmers of the Zadar region have been fostering a long tradition of raising indigenous free-range sheep and lambs, perfecting their specific production of first-rate meat and cheese products. 

    The outstanding natural conditions, in which the strong bora wind scatters nearby sea salt on fragrant shrubs growing all around, give particularly marvellous and distinctive aroma to these two staples of many Dalmatian recipes.

    Lamb

    Celebrated by many food experts and considered among the best in the world, lamb and cheese of the area have made famous several coastal, inland and insular localities. However, no top list of gourmet food would exclude young spit-roasted lamb and hard sheep-milk cheese from Pag Island. Visit, taste, tour, experience, learn more about the production and find out for yourself what makes them so unique!
