Le Saint-Raymond

Fromagerie Alexis de Portneuf – Saint-Raymond

Québec


Soft

M.F. : 23% Moisture : 50%

Under its barely moist, orangey-red washed rind, this soft cheese made from pasteurized milk has a smooth, supple ivory interior that melts on the tongue. Its hazelnut taste is accompanied by a woody, fruity touch that lingers nicely in the mouth.

During the spring of 1842, four young men set about establishing the town of Saint-Raymond. They had crossed forests and rivers to reach the land that was so highly praised by the Huron. Saint-Raymond de Portneuf is also home to passionate cheese makers who, like their ancestors, are a source of pride for all the region’s inhabitants.

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