Sirocco

Fromagerie des Cantons inc.

Cantons-de-l'Est


Firm

M.F. : 34% Moisture : 34%

This firm washed-rind cheese is made from raw milk, a process that allows milk’s natural flora to shine. A Morbier-style cheese, it is aged for over 6 months and features a central and horizontal line of vegetable ash.

The cheese maker’s products feature names inspired by different winds. Sirocco is a violent, very dry Saharan wind that blows over northern Africa and the southern Mediterranean Sea.

Sirocco cheese is available from the cheese maker and at specialty cheese shops as well as several grocery stores.
