La Rumeur

Fromagerie Alexis de Portneuf – Saint-Raymond

Québec


Soft

M.F. : 30% Moisture : 50%

Soft cheese with a bloomy rind, made from pasteurized milk and cream. This double-cream Brie is tasty and perfectly aged. Rumour has it that the seigniory of Portneuf’s first governor fell in love with a young Amerindian woman, to the disapproval of Jesuit Jean de Brébeuf. A few years after forbidding the lovers’ wedding, De Brébeuf was beheaded and burned by the Huron. Since then, the rumour has been spreading in hushed tones…

The cheese La Rumeur is available from the cheese maker, at specialty grocery stores and cheese shops, and in most supermarkets.
