Help from a Serbian friend, please (food-related, rather than language)

Help from a Serbian friend, please (food-related, rather than language)
 
Hello, Serbian friends.
My grandparents were from Vojvodina (although it was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire when they lived there), and I īve tried to keep some food traditions alive. I can īt get kajmak in this part of the US, so I īm wondering whether British clotted cream or Italian mascarpone would be a close enough substitute to make gibanica. Also, my recipe for gibanica calls for a white cheese in addition to the kajmak, but is very vague about the nature of this cheese.  Do you use a fresh cheese or an aged one for gibanica?
 
Thanks for any help you can offer me,
Bruce

Hi Bruce,
 
I don īt know about British clotted cream, but I don īt think mascarpone would be a good option.
If you can īt use kajmak, which is really yummy by the way, it is better to go just with cheese.
You can use both fresh or aged cheese, but if you use the fresh one, you īll have to use more salt.
My friend who lives abroad, on my suggestion, uses feta cheese mixed with sour cream or creme fraiche.
I hope this helped.
If you have any more questions, I īll be happy to answer them.
Prijatno!!!
:))

Thank you, Mara. I like the idea of feta with creme fraiche.

BRuce, have you considered fat free yogurt? I already know the answer :-)

Getting a little personal there, Lynne!   
 
Anyway, since kajmak is just thickened cream, it is the opposite of fat-free yogurt.
