As the story goes, the secret recipe for this cheese is French in origin. That makes this cheese directly related to Port Salut and Saint Paulin cheeses. Cisterian Trappist monks brought the recipe with them when they came from the French Notre Dame de Port-du-Salut abbey to found the Mariastern Abbey, Banja Luka in 1869. The neighborhood that grew up around the new abbey began to be called Trapista. It is famous for this cheese and a beer.

Our online store is set up to allow you to browse our European Pantry shelves from the comfort of your home. It also enables you to pre-order and make arrangements for pick-up or drop-off in our delivery areas. We strive to keep the prices listed on our online store current but as a small retailer it is impossible for us to be 100% accurate for the 1000+ products we list. Furthermore, package weight variations for meat and cheese products make it impossible to provide accurate fixed prices.
Therefore, as you shop your “total order” will be an APPROXIMATE total. After you submit your order, we will communicate any changes in pricing as well as the actual prices of weighed items. You will then be able to confirm your order and arrange payment. Thank you for shopping with us! We hope it is a pleasant experience. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our products or our ordering process.
