Olomoucké syrečky (Czech pronunciation: [ˈolomou̯tskɛː ˈsɪrɛtʃkɪ]) or olomoucké tvarůžky is a ripened soft cheese made in Loštice, Czech Republic, which is very easy to recognize by its typical smell and yellowish color. The curd cheese has a special taste and unique odor, which depend on the degree of over-ripening, with the aroma varying from slight to strong. It usually has the form of small rolls or rings, soft consistency and golden smear. The cheese can be prepared in a number of ways—for example, you can fry it, marinate it, or add it to Bramboráky.
Olomoucké tvarůžky is the only original Czech cheese with a distinctive, pungent taste. This naturally matured soft cheese is free of any chemical additives. Olomouc curd cheese is suitable for dietary food due to very low fat content (around 1%).
The first written mention of this cheese dates back to the 15th century. Until the 19th century, it was produced in the villages surrounding Olomouc, and was generally regarded as a peasant food. The A. W. Company has been making this cheese since 1876. There is even a small museum dedicated to the cheese at the A. W. Company production plant in Loštice.
