Thanks to everyone that responded to my query about finding this cheese. You have all been very helpful and I can't wait to try out your suggestions.
To go a step further - has anyone heard of a meat called Bastourma? It is an Armenian smoked meat, often hung up to cure in red pepper. Any ideas where that could be found?
These are all childhood memories I am trying to recapture,when I was young and my parents were travelling around the world.
