Brebichon: apple washed cheese love

January 31, 2014

I simply adore Brebichon, a farmstead sheep’s milk cheese that is oh so creamy, delicate and luscious. This apple washed cheese is an absolute must buy on every stop I make to Fromagerie Atwater in Montreal.

Le Pont Blanc: A Milky, Silky delight

This organic, unpasteurized cheese made from the milk of Brown Swiss cows by Fromagerie au Gre des Champs is one of the most luscious, gorgeous mild lactic cheeses I’ve tasted in ages. Sexy and fantastic!

Cheese on the Highline, New York City

August 22, 2013


An impromptu stop at Terroir at the Porch, a seasonally open spot to grab a quick bite along the Highline with craft beers and local wines, and a view of the Hudson River. The cheese list as well as the beer list seems to change a bit daily, so you could go frequently and have a new experience every time. The cheese was supplied by Murray’s Cheese, one of Manhattan’s absolute best cheese shops. If you are at all into cheese, Murray’s is a must go to stop on your NYC adventures. The High Line is an elevated freight rail line transformed into a public park on Manhattan’s West Side, a nice respite from the hustle and bustle with great food options. See, good cheese opportunities can be found everywhere!

Queso Fresco – from Newfoundland!

June 11, 2013

The Great Canadian Cheese Festival provides a great opportunity to introduce Canada’s cheesemakers to the public at large. At the recent festival I was introduced to the great team from Five Brothers Artisan Cheese who make cheese out in St. John’s, Newfoundland. They are known throughout St. John’s local food scene, so it’s time for them to get some exposure on a national scale. I enjoyed some of their queso fresco, a perfect summertime cheese.

Maple and cheddar, two quintessentially Canadian products come together in perfect harmony in Black River Cheese Company’s Maple Cheddar. Sweet and savoury, this cheese achieves a perfect balance of flavours.
