Cider washed cheese on a cold winter’s night

I strongly believe that great cheeses can be found anywhere; your favourite farmers’ market, specialty shop, grocery store or even at the train station. The Mini Tomme du Manoir is a cider washed cheese I picked up at the Montreal train station, and turned out to be a lovely treat. Keep an open mind, and your eyes peeled, and your taste buds will be rewarded!

Watch as CurdyGirl enjoys Le Secret de Maurice. Coincidentally, today would have been her uncle Maurice’s birthday, so this video is dedicated to his memory. A truly unique cheese for a truly unique individual.

Primeridge Pure Pepper

June 19, 2012

I love coming across young cheesemakers – proof that artisan cheesemaking is on the rise, alive and well in Canada! Primeridge Pure is one of Ontario’s newest cheesemakers, specializing in curds and cream cheeses from their herd of Holstein cows, and have they’ve begun to delve into aged cheeses too. Certainly a cheesemaker to watch, they are young, they have energy, and no lack of creativity to boot!

Beer washed cheese – the best of both worlds

June 11, 2012

I love cheese, I love beer, and was delighted to find renowned Quebec cheesemaker Fritz Kaiser’s latest offering, Clos St-Ambroise on a recent trip to Montreal. If you are just getting started on beer and cheese pairings, this is a no-brainer! Give this a try – McAuslan is a fantastic brewery worth supporting, Fritz Kaiser’s cheeses are delicious and accessible – quite the delicious combo in your mouth. You won’t regret it!
