Belle Crème

Belle Crème

Fromagerie Alexis de Portneuf – Saint-Raymond

Québec


Soft

M.F. : 35% Moisture : 45%

This soft cheese with a bloomy rind is made from pasteurized milk and cream. One morning, on his way back from the home of his childhood friend, the lovely farm lady, the artisan decided to create a glowing tribute to her. He made a cheese that evoked the sublime taste of her cream, the generous smoothness of her fresh butter and the intoxicating aroma of the forest mushrooms she loved. This triple-cream Brie has a creamy and smooth texture, and its fluffy rind has a flavour of mushrooms and nuts, with the taste changing slightly depending on the age of the cheese, as well as a hint of salt.

Available from the cheese maker, at specialty grocery stores and cheese shops and in most supermarkets.
