Those who dropped by in August know that a friend and I recently did some traveling in beautiful, eastern Canada. Aside from the wonderful scenery and people, there was cheese!
One place we explored was Prince Edward Island. We knew about Cheese Lady's Gouda from a visit we made last year. The cheese is made on the premises, which is in a verdant setting, complete with hay bales and pasturing sheep. Last year, I picked up the classic, plain gouda. This year, I went with one wheel of herb and garlic, and a smaller wheel flavoured with pepper and mustard. The former is delicious, the latter I have yet to sample...but I know it will be tasty!
While in Quebec, well stocked with fromageries (cheese makers/shops), I spotted a cheese named "La Notre-Dames-des-Neiges". The beautiful label and name (which means "Our Lady of the Snow") was not to be resisted!
More cheese was purchased on the drive through "La Belle Province". After all, I can't buy these ones at home! Here are the translations of the colourful names (and links).
Le Ciel de Charlevoix - The Sky of Charlevoix
La Belle Brune de Charlevoix - The Beautiful Brunette from Charlevoix
L'Heritage Fromagerie des Basques - The Heritage of Basques Cheese
Come on over to my little home so we can share all of these PEI and Quebec cheeses!
