Mont Saint-Benoît

Mont Saint-Benoît

Abbaye de Saint-Benoît-du-Lac

Cantons-de-l'Est


Firm

M.G. : 30 % Moisture : 43 %

Marked with little round holes called “eyes,” the interior of this rindless cheese is firm but supple and elastic. It is made of whole pasteurized milk and has a hazelnut aroma with light notes of fermentation typical of Swiss cheeses.

Like the charming countryside in the Saint-Benoît-du-Lac region, the mild, lightly salty hazelnut and butter flavour of this cheese will win you over. This cheese cooks well and melts and browns at high temperatures.

This cheese is available from the cheese maker, at specialty grocery stores and cheese shops, and in most supermarkets.
