Tomme d’Elles

 

Maison D’Affinage Maurice Dufour, Quebec

Unpasteurized Cow’s & Sheep’s Milk

Master cheese maker Maurice Dufour has again made a masterpiece of a cheese with this half sheep’s milk, half cow’s milk tomme. With all of the smooth, delicate sweetness that one expects from a great sheep’s cheese and a powerful, sophisticated grassiness from the cow’s milk.

 

Tiger Blue

 

Poplar Grove Cheese (Artisan), British Columbia

Pasteurized Cow’s Milk

Made at Poplar Grove, the only cheese and wine producer in Canada, the Tiger Blue is one of British Columbia’s most popular and acclaimed cheeses. Rich, thick veins of blue streak the entire interior, giving the cheese a sharp and spicy flavor and feel. Taking the best features of Roquefort and Stilton, the Tiger Blue is uniquely strong and flavorful among Canadian blues.

Ciel de Charlevoix

 

Maison d’Affinage Maurice Dufour (affineur), Québec

Unpasteurized Cow’s Milk

The milk of a single herd is used to produce this silky textured blue, which is then aged by pioneering Charlevoix region affineur Maurice Dufour. Ciel de Charlevoix has deep blue veins, compelling savory aromas, restrained salt, and sweet, earthy, almost meaty flavors.

Rondoudo

 

Fromages Chaput (Artisan), Québec

Unpasteurized Goat’s Milk
