Petit Rubis

Petit Rubis

Fromagerie Alexis de Portneuf – Saint-Raymond

Québec


Soft

M.F. : 27% Moisture : 52%

Made from pasteurized milk, this soft, washed-rind cheese is easily identified by the red casein stamp in its centre. It has a delicate flavour and smooth, creamy interior that melts in your mouth. When young, its delicate, subtle flavour has notes of fresh bread. With age, the cheese develops a rich, creamy flavour with floral and hazelnut notes and a hint of hay and dried herbs.

Petit Rubis is available from the cheese maker, at specialty grocery stores and cheese shops and in most supermarkets.

Awards and distinctions

Placed first in its category at the 2006 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.
