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.

June 11, 2013

The Great Canadian Cheese Festival provides a great opportunity to introduce Canada’s cheesemakers to the public at large. At the recent festival I was introduced to the great team from Five Brothers Artisan Cheese who make cheese out in St. John’s, Newfoundland. They are known throughout St. John’s local food scene, so it’s time for them to get some exposure on a national scale. I enjoyed some of their queso fresco, a perfect summertime cheese.

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!
