Brick Ayoye! is a firm cheese made from pasteurized milk. It has a mild flavour, with notes of butter. Brick Ayoye! is perfect for croissants, sandwiches or hors d’oeuvres. When eating Chinese fondue, wrap it in meat and let it melt in the fondue to create a delectable morsel of meat and cheese. Or use it to give scrambled eggs a nice, creamy texture.
Why AYOYE!? The cheese maker gives the cheeses humorous names with local flair. This is a brick cheese, and the word “brick” sounds like the French word “brique” meaning an object shaped like a block, which corresponds to the format of the packaging. So, the message on the label, “AYOYE! Une brique de saveurs,” means, “WOW! A brick of flavours!” The Choquette family has been making a whole series of cheeses since 1976, proudly displaying the identity and accents from here. The Lac-Mégantic cheese maker is the fourth generation to continue the tradition of making cheeses from here, following in the footsteps of founder Vianney Choquette.
Brick AYOYE! is available from the cheese maker and in several grocery stores in the Cantons-de-l’Est, Chaudière-Appalaches, Montérégie and Centre-du-Québec regions.
