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.

Taleggio: tantalizing tastebuds since the 10th century

April 2, 2013

This northern Italian, name protected cheese is tangy and mild when young, then develops into a full flavoured, beefy wood-mushroomy extravaganza with age. Welcomed on my cheese plate at any stage!

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
