Hand made by Benedictine monks from the Abbaye de Saint-Benoît-du-Lac in Quebec. The Abbaye's skilled cheese makers have been crafting blue cheese since 1943, starting with blue ERMITE. Today, more than a dozen varieties of cheese are made at the Abbaye.
This semi-soft blue-veined cheese is made from pasteurized milk and aged for 6 months in the Abbaye de Saint-Benoît-du-Lac’s ripening rooms. A sweet mild blue with a delicate smokey flavour. The smoking process gives the cheese a slightly woody taste that pairs well with the acidity of the blue veining.
Soft fresh goat milk cheese marinated in grapeseed oil and garlic and parsley. The cheese is smooth with bright citrusy notes that pair perfectly with the savoury garlic and herbs. Serve with your favourite bread, add to a salad or use to garnish pizza or focaccias. Try them in a grilled cheese sandwich! The leftover oil makes an excellent, flavourful dressing for salads or veggies as well as a tasty bread dipper.
This semi-soft, washed rind farm cheese is made with raw milk drawn from the Fromagerie l’Autre Versant’s herd of Ayrshire cows. Its orange-brown rind is partially covered by a fluffy white coat. The cheese has a buttery colour, a supple, shiny, melt-in-your mouth interior and a scattering of small holes.
Inspired by AOC Morbier, Le Douanier is semi-soft, with a copper-coloured washed rind, with the pale golden paste split with a thin line of grey-blue ash made from maple wood. Flavour notes of green apple and nuts.
The ash line in the middle is symbolic of the U.S.-Canadian border that is located within a kilometre of Fromagerie Fritz Kaiser in Noyan, Quebec. Fittingly, Le Douanier translates to "customs officer."
