Cendré de Lune

Cendré de Lune

Fromagerie Alexis de Portneuf – Saint-Raymond

Québec


Soft

M.F. : 41% Moisture : 44%

This soft cheese with a bloomy rind is made from pasteurized milk and cream. This Brie has an aroma of fresh mushrooms and a peppery finish to its taste. Its delicately tart flavour matures to contain notes of butter and hot milk. This cheese ripens slowly from the outside in to develop a perfect creamy texture.

Inspired by the moon as a poetic symbol of beauty and good taste, the Cendré de Lune is covered in a fine vegetable ash to recreate the mythical appearance of moon dust.

The Cendré de Lune cheese is available from the cheese maker, at specialty grocery stores and cheese shops, and in most supermarkets.
