Religieuse

Fromagerie du Presbytère

Centre-du-Québec


Semi-soft

M.F. : 30 % Moisture : 45 %

This is a semi-soft cheese with a washed rind made of thermized milk. It has floral aromas that reveal touches of slightly tangy butter and a rich and melting texture.

The Religieuse was born in 2012 and launched for the 125th anniversary of Sainte-Élizabeth-de-Warwick, where the cheese maker, a jewel in this very agricultural village’s crown, is located. The term religieuse (meaning “nun”) refers to the cheese crust that forms at the bottom of the fondue pot, or to the well-grilled rind around the half wheel used in the raclette meal. For a raclette cheese created at Fromagerie du Presbytère, there can be no doubt that Religieuse was a predestined name.

This cheese is available from the cheese maker and in some specialized cheese shops.
