Cordon bleu

Cheesy indulgence

A delicious variation filled with the unique Montafon Sura Kees. 

It is usually enjoyed with vinegar, oil and onions, pure on black bread or used in traditional meals. This low-fat cheese is also valued as a miracle treatment for hangovers.

The specialty Montafon Sura Kees has existed in the region since the 12th century. The valley can thus boast of one of the oldest traditions in cheese making in the Alpine region. Some 800 Montafon cows provide 2.5 million kg of milk per year, from which 250,000 kg of Sura Kees is made. Either traditionally by hand in the Alpine dairy farms (approx. 10,000 kg) or using new methods in dairies in the valley.

During the annual Bura Day in the Schruns church square, the best Sura Kees of the year is selected by a jury. Come by and taste for yourself! Something completely new in the gourmet department is a sausage filled with Sura Kees, similar to a Käse-Kraine (a cheese-stuffed sausage).

“The proper temperature of the fat is critical: when using low-fat cheese such as Montafon Sura Kees, make sure that the fat in the pan is not too hot.”
