Stinking Bishop – a full on washed rind

March 27, 2014

This highly aromatic gem of cheese was made famous in part by Wallace and Gromit, and also due to winning a number of awards for its awesomeness, hails from Gloucestershire, England. Its name actually comes from the liquor it is washed in; the hard cider from a local type of pear called the Stinking Bishop, not a commentary on clergymen. Full flavoured, milky, fruity, yeasty, beefy, this cheese has a sensuous texture you’ll love!

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.

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!
