Valbert

Fromagerie Lehmann

Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean


Semi-soft

M.F. : 32% Moisture : 43%

This firm, half-cooked and pressed farm cheese has a washed rind and is made with thermized milk. It is surface-ripened and aged for about six months. Its flavour is reminiscent of hazelnuts and warm butter.

Its name, Valbert, is a tribute to the hamlet in the Swiss Jura, where three generations of the Lehmann family were born. This is the region that inspired their great-grandmother to first make this cheese. The recipe has been a well-kept secret passed from mother to son and father to daughter.

This cheese is made in limited quantities and available mostly from the cheese maker.
