This firm, rindless, unripened cheese is made from pasteurized milk. It features a pale yellow interior, a smooth and shiny surface, and a soft, melt-in-your-mouth texture. It has a milky, buttery aroma and a mild, slightly tangy hazelnut taste.
Available plain or seasoned, Fromagerie Le Détour cheese curds are made every day.
The owners of the Fromagerie Le Détour, Mario Quirion and Ginette Bégin, have been making the fresh cheese since 1999. They proudly process locally produced cow’s milk and are increasingly using milk from a local farm with exclusively Jersey cattle, which gives the cheese superior aromas and subtle flavours that are unique to the Notre-Dame-du-Lac area.
This cheese is available from the cheese maker and in grocery stores in the region.
