Pag is known for its gastronomy, especially cheese, lamb and salt. The particularity of the Pag cheese is its hardness and salinity, and specific aroma and flavor that give the essential oils of aromatic plants. Sheep are raised in mountainous areas that are exposed to frequent strong winds due to salt. It is this salt, sage and immortelle make cheese, recognizable flavor. Cheese can be purchased during the winter and early spring months. Young cheese is much softer and lighter than the mature cheese. Mature (old) can grate cheese and use as a food additive.
Besides cheese, you can try our Pag lamb whit specific flavor. Difference of Pag and other meat lambs occurs due to separation of young lambs from their mothers. While elsewhere the lamb is separated when it reaches a 30 pound at Pag it is done much earlier due to the exploitation of sheep milk in the production of the famous cheese. Because of such breeding and dietary habits, lamb meat has a specific taste, and world gastronomes consider it to be unforgettable delicacy of Pag table.
