This firm, pressed and cooked washed-rind cheese is made with certified organic thermized milk from a herd of Holstein cows. It is ripened for over four months and dry-cured with sea salt. It has a delicate sweet flavour on the inside, while its rind has hints of meat broth.
Cheese with sea-side flavours!
Cheese maker Christian Paturel is committed to promoting local products, which is why he chose to work with organic milk and to become certified in addition to associating with local suppliers for his organic milk, salted herbs and mead. At Ferme Géracine in St-Damase in the Matapédia Valley of Gaspésie, where the certified organic milk is from, the comfort of animals is of the utmost priority.
L’Affine Bouche cheese is available from the cheese maker and Bas-Saint-Laurent grocery stores, as well as some specialty grocery stores and cheese shops throughout Quebec.
