NAPOLÉON

NAPOLÉON

Fromagerie Blackburn

Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean


Firm

M.F. : 31% Moisture : 39%

This firm, pressed and cooked farm cheese is surface ripened for 6 to 9 months and made with thermized milk drawn from the herd of Holstein cows on the family farm. Under its orangey pink rind, this cheese has a golden colour, sometimes strewn with small holes. It has a milky aroma with hints of fruit and vegetable and a fruity flavour that lingers in the mouth, leaving a hint of spice. Napoléon is delicious when served with fresh fruit or when used in a quiche, omelette, soup, croque-monsieur or sandwich, on pasta or in a cheese fondue.

The fourth generation of Blackburns chose to name the cheese Napoléon in honour of Napoléon Blackburn, founder of the company.

This cheese is available from the cheese maker and at supermarkets in the region.
