Le Curé Labelle

Fromagerie Le p'tit train du Nord

Laurentides


Semi-soft

M.F. : 28% Moisture : 45%

Surface-ripened for more than 30 days, this semi-soft, washed-rind cheese is made from pasteurized milk produced by a unique herd of Holstein cows at the J.M.S. Amitiés farm in Ferme-Neuve. Wanting exceptional quality milk, the farmer adds flax seed to the cows’ daily feed ration. The cheese maker gets a tastier, better-looking cheese that melts in one’s mouth. Under its orange, slightly humid circle-bearing rind lies a melt-in-your-mouth, ivory-coloured interior that is smooth and homogeneous. This cheese features a light nutty taste, with floral and smoky aromas.

This creamy cheese will reign over your platter as majestically as the famed priest Labelle reigned over the railroad that brought development to the Laurentides region in the early 20th century. Fromagerie Le P’tit Train du Nord has chosen to make a fine, powerful yet balanced cheese in homage to this great man.

Le Curé Labelle is available from the cheese maker, at specialty grocery stores and cheese shops as well as from supermarkets.
