So, what is ost?

Ost is a Scandinavian word that translates to "cheese" in English. This versatile ingredient can range in flavor from mild and creamy to sharp and tangy, and is made from the curdled milk of cows, goats, or sheep. Chefs and home cooks alike use ost in a variety of dishes, from the classic mac and cheese to more sophisticated cheese plates. It can also be melted, grated, or sliced and used as a topping for pizzas, sandwiches, and salads. Whether you're a cheese lover or just looking to add a burst of flavor to your next meal, ost is a must-try ingredient.
