Saint-Honoré

Fromagerie Alexis de Portneuf – Saint-Raymond

Québec


Soft

M.F. : 35% Moisture : 50%

This soft cheese with a bloomy rind is made from pasteurized milk and cream. This triple-cream Brie has a creamy texture, and its delicate flavour is skillfully wedded to a rich composition.

The beloved priest of a small village in the Portneuf region was about to retire. As thanks for his dedication to the community, the villagers asked the cheese maker to create a product in his honour. That is how this exceptional cheese was born. 

Saint-Honoré cheese is available from the cheese maker, at specialty grocery stores and cheese shops, and in most supermarkets.
