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!

Introducing: Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheese

February 1, 2012

I’m excited to introduce you to one of Ontario’s newest cheesemakers, Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheese from Woodstock, Ontario. Shep Ysselstein is the owner and cheesemaker, he’s a young guy, not even 30, and is making excellent quality Swiss-style washed rind cheeses. The hard cheese is similar to a Gruyere, the semi hard is more like a Gouda (he is Dutch after all), and he also makes a soft cheese, which I did not get to try yet. Shep has been making cheese at his dairy only since August 2011 (it’s February 1, 2012 now), and the results are most impressive. This is certainly one cheesemaker to watch!

Caerphilly, a Canadian interpretation of a Welsh classic!

October 12, 2011

Caerphilly is the only traditional cheese associated with Wales, though the one profiled here was made in Nova Scotia, Canada. It’s a bright, lemony cheese that is great for snacking, drinking with a lovely wheat beer or in a sandwich or burger with mustard. No wonder this was a staple in miners’ lunches!
