Bleu Des Causses
Bleu des Causses is made in the heart of the stark limestone country known as Les Causses in the Rouergue, France. A close cousin to Roquefort, the Bleu des Causses is matured for 3 to 6 weeks in the natural caves ventilated by "fleurines", natural chimneys, formed in the cliffs. It is these "fleurines" that allow the cheese to blossom and develop the aroma of the region. The taste is soft and savory, reminiscent of summer pastures. In the winter this taste is more pronounced.

"If Cheddar is the little black dress of Canadian Cheese, than Chevre Noir is the Chanel classic with a twist" (The Globe and Mail)Made from goat's milk, Chevre Noir is very different from other chevres because it is actually more similar to a cheddar than anything else. The white cheese is covered in two layers of black wax and has a distinctive flavor with hard, crumbly yet smooth textures.

This spectacular cheese claims its name from the man who was known as one of Canada’s earliest and most renowned environmentalists. Visually, the ash covered rind presents itself so well that you might not want to consume such a beautiful looking cheese. His goat’s milk cheese offers an interior paste that is white, firm and dense and transforms into a soft, crumbly texture in the mouth, while also offering pleasingly sharp, lemony flavours. It begins to soften with age, especially near the rind, so hesitate to eat it only as long as you can.
