July’s ‘Cheese of the Month’: Fleurs d’ail – a hard cheese made from raw cow’s milk made by Le Fromage du Village, Lorrainville, Québec.
This medium-strong cheddar has a very smooth texture, reminding us of the old cheddar from 50 years ago, when every town had a cheese dairy. The lighter, milder side of garlic, the scape and flower pod (typically harvested in June), is added for extra flavour. Perfect as a snack or appetizer, it can also be added to certain dishes, especially as a topping for browning.
This cheese was a finalist in the 2006 Canadian Cheese Grand Prix.
