This is a creamy cheese spread (also called Liptovsky syr) that is popular in Trieste and Gorizia. It is also widely consumed in Hungary and eastern Austria. Surely it is a legacy of the years when Venezia Giulia was under the rule of Vienna. I first tasted it as a child at Zahar’s, the well-known Manhattan emporium. To this day they produce huge amounts that New Yorkers love. It is custom any in Venezia Giulia to eat liptauer spread on rye bread as an appetizer or a snack. Yo
