Le Sorcier de Missisquoi

Les Dépendances

Montérégie


Semi-soft

M.F. : 24% Moisture : 50%

This semi-soft, washed-rind cheese is made from pasteurized milk. Inspired by the traditional French cheese Morbier, this cheese has a soft, elastic interior that proudly displays a line of vegetable ash in the centre. The rind has an aroma similar to wet hay, while the interior has an aroma reminiscent of hazelnut. It has a delicate taste. Its appearance makes it an interesting addition to a platter. It also melts very well in a raclette or a grilled cheese.

Why the name “Le Sorcier de Missisquoi”? Sorcier does not mean a sorcerer casting spells with a magic wand. It refers to a shaman who paints his face and speaks incantations; the connection with the cheese is that it is painted with a line of ash in its centre. Like the Loch Ness or Lake Memphremagog monsters, the Missisquoi sorcerer is the legend of a friendly creature—everyone knows he exists, but very few have ever seen him. 

Le Sorcier de Missisquoi cheese is available in grocery stores, specialty cheese shops and some supermarkets.
