The origins of the cheese can be traced back to the 18th century monks of the French Notre Dame de Port-du-Salut abbey. The secret recipe found its way to Hungary through the Bosnian Mariastern monastery.
Trappista cheese is a pale yellowish color and has 3–5 mm, sparsely distributed, holes. It typically comes packaged in red plastic foil, regardless of manufacturer. Typical packaging sizes include 1.5 kg large and 1/2 kg small "wheels", as well as various slices and "bricks".
This cheese is best consumed with fruits, wine, or as a melted topping on hot vegetable or meat.
