This rindless, semi-soft Monterey Jack cheese is made of partly skimmed pasteurized milk. It has a straw-yellow colour, a supple and slightly crumbly texture and a light buttery taste with a hazelnut aroma. This cheese is very versatile and is ideal for au gratin dishes, burgers, nachos and even a raclette!
Currently available only in a “light” version.
What we now know as the Fromagerie Lemaire was established by Marcel Lemaire in 1956, and his children are now at the helm. Committed to providing fresh and high-quality products, this cheese maker is renowned for its traditional cheese curds, which it serves daily, hot and straight from the vat.
Monterey Jack Lemaire is available at the cheese maker’s two outlets in Saint-Cyrille and Saint-Germain, as well as in convenience stores and grocery stores in the Drummondville and Trois-Rivières regions.
