Reypenaer: a sophisticated taste to savour

August 24, 2012

I am a lucky gal indeed, as a dear, thoughtful coworker brought me back a surprise cheese treat from her vacation. High on flavour with a divine texture to write home about, I will be savouring this treasure, dreaming of a way to get to Holland to pick some more up! Reypenaer

Parmigiano Reggiano – One of the great Kings of Cheese

July 14, 2012

One of the great Kings of Cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano is a classic Italian hard cheese. Extremely versatile, it’s a staple in any household. This particular specimen was aged 30 months- a delectable treat for you to savour, one crunchy bit at a time!

Protesting with Fourme D’Ambert!

June 25, 2012

Books that go on an on about “the evils of dairy’ or how “bad cheese is for you”, particularly when sold in stores that also sell copious amounts of specialty cheese just drive me batty, and leave me no choice but to consume good cheese in protest. Fourme d’Ambert is one of the world’s oldest cheeses, dating back to Roman times. This is one of the mildest blues I’ve come across, starts out sweet and creamy, ending with savoury finish, an easy to digest form of protest.

Hot enough for you?

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!
