Cider washed cheese on a cold winter’s night

January 17, 2013

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!

Epoisses de Bourgogne – a true treat of divine inspiration

December 19, 2012

The ultimate in washed rind beauties, this full flavoured cheese that is quite aromatically gifted is a treat any day. It’s the perfect cheese to celebrate with or to enjoy on a random Wednesday. First developed by monks around the 16th century, nearly lost forever after WW1&2, revived in the mid-50’s, and became AOC protected in 1991.   Fun trivia bit: this cheese is rumoured to have been illegal to bring on public transportation based on it’s aromatic strength.  Runny, supple texture, hearty beefy, briny, savoury flavours, this is a true treat of divine inspiration.epoisses

When you see Stitchelton, do not hesitate, just pick it up and buy it. This farmstead cheese is the ultimate homage to preserving the heritage of British cheesemaking. Made in the same region as Stilton, but made with raw milk. This is an ultra creamy/velvety textured cheese with a bright flavour profile, long lasting finish is both highly complex and highly delicious.
