Experience a taste of Bavaria

Creamy and aromatic specialty cheeses


We believe that making exceptional cheeses starts with the very best milk. That’s why we source our milk close to home. Our cheeses are crafted in Bavaria, an alpine region in southern Germany with a heritage of dairy farming and cheese production. We source our milk from regional farms in the Allgäu, where cows feed on the green grass and alpine flowers all summer long. The result is in the taste of our extraordinary cheeses – creamy, flavorful, and delicious. 

Bavarian Made Limburger

Maifest, Maibaum and Maibock!

German celebration of the spring’s arrival

Mayfest (Ger. Maifest) celebrates the arrival of spring and reawakening of nature after a long and dark winter season. It originates from a pagan tradition and takes place at night from April 30th to May 1st. During Mayfest German villages are decorated with flowers, bonfires are lighted, people are dancing, singing and drinking (mostly Maibock beer brewed especially for the occasion and Maibowle - a mix of champagne, white wine and sweet woodruff). The most important symbol of Mayfest is a so-called Maypole (Ger. Maibaum). It is a tall tree (without branches) with ribbons tied to it, a wreath on its top and sometimes it is carved with shields of local guilds as well. Mayfest is also widely celebrated in the USA, so don’t hesitate and join the upcoming festivities!

Print recipe

Preparation

1. For the batter, mix the flour with the sugar, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Separate the eggs and mix the egg yolks with buttermilk and the flour mixture. Melt 2 tbsp butter; lightly brown and stir. Beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks and fold into the batter. 

2. Cut the Limburger into slices and arrange on a plate. Peel and chop the onion and carrot. Remove wilted leaves from the cabbage. Clean the rest, and cut out thick veined leaves. Cut cabbage into strips. Steam with carrot, onion, and 1–2 tablespoons oil for 6–8 minutes with lid. Season with salt, pepper, and cumin. Wash parsley, shake dry, and pluck. Coarsely chop the leaves, and mix with the hot cabbage.

3. Heat the pan, and add a little butter. For each pancake, add one heaping tablespoon of batter to the pan. Fry for 2 minutes. Flip and finish frying for 2–3 minutes. Repeat the process until the batter is used up. You can keep the finished pancakes warm in the meantime (e.g. in the oven at 70°C).

4. Dress the pancakes with cabbage, and cover with Limburger. Drizzle some maple syrup over the pancakes.
