Covered with a yellow-orange food coating, this firm cheese is made from pasteurized whole milk, and contains no modified milk ingredients. It is interior-ripened in a cold room for up to two months. Its supple interior that melts in the mouth is quite relaxing. Its light aroma and smooth texture will charm your guests at the end of a meal. This cheese is at its best when served at room temperature on a homemade crouton. It brings a delicate flavour to your tastings, and is also the perfect breakfast companion. Try it with fish or chicken, or in your meat pies—the possibilities are endless!
Founded in 1994, the Fromagerie des Basques has become an essential stop along Route 132 in Trois-Pistoles. It has a splendid view of the St. Lawrence River and of Île aux Basques, which it is named after. The company is a crown jewel of its town, and its reputation transcends borders. Over the years, it has become a major attraction for lovers of fine products.
Le Saint-Paulin des Basques is available at the Fromagerie des Basques and in the refrigerated section of supermarkets, convenience stores and service stations as well as in several fine grocery stores and specialty grocery stores, from La Pocatière to the Gaspésie region and all the way to the border of New Brunswick.
