This cheese is a specialty of Finland & Lapland. It is a round cheese made from cow's or reindeer's milk. The curds are drained and pressed into a flat, wooden platter with a rim. Then placed in front of the fire until the outer layer is "toasted". The cheese looks like bread,thus the name "cheese bread".
