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.
