The RIGHTROU! Swiss is a firm, rindless, lactose-free cheese made from pasteurized milk. Its interior is strewn with holes (eyes). Its texture is soft and melts in your mouth. Slightly sweet, it has a strong nutty flavour.
It is available in various formats: in slices, it has the perfect size and thickness to give flavour to everyday sandwiches. In block format, it lends itself to any fantasy. It can be cut into cubes and fit nicely on fresh fruit skewers. It adds class to salads and shreds well into quiches and omelettes.
Why “RIGHTROU!”? The cheese maker gives its cheeses humorous names with accents from here. The name RIGHTROU! sounds just like “right through,” but dissecting it, right brings us back to an idea of “real” or “authentic,” and through sounds like the word trou in French, which recalls the holes typical of Swiss cheeses. The RIGHTROU! Swiss can be used in 1,001 ways, and the cheese maker calls it THE culinary discovery for transforming a rather ordinary recipe into a quite extraordinary dish. In fact, the packaging reads “RIGHTROU! Une véritable trouvaille” (RIGHTROU! A real find).
The Suisse RIGHTROU! is available from the cheese maker and in many grocery stores in the Cantons-de-l’Est, Chaudière-Appalaches, Montérégie and Centre-du-Québec regions.
