Being located in Baie-des-Sables, right along the St. Lawrence River, the cheese maker likes to give its cheeses names related to the sea. Thus, the name le p’tit Blanchon was inspired by the small marine animal with the soft white fur.
Le p’tit Blanchon is available from the cheese maker, as well as in the markets and convenience stores of Baie-des-Sables in Gaspésie.
