Qui lait cru !?! Fromagerie is a fromagerie that we frequent when we are in Montreal. It is located inside the Jean-Taon Market place. It’s an artisanal cheese shop that sells cheese from goat, sheep and cow. One can sample any one of their cheese before purchase. They carry an incredible number of cheese from the Quebec region and around the world (mostly French and Spanish).
Look at their signs – how cute! Do you have a preference for type of cheese you like? Cow’s milk? Sheep’s milk? Or goat’s milk? Personally, I am diverse but prefers a semi-soft cheese from cows with a nice crust that is not too stinky.
There is usually a long line to the store and you go around their u-shaped cheese cases, trying whatever cheese you desire. One particular cheese I had this time had a crust that is washed by Chardonnay, Merlot and sea salt. Mmm.
Interestingly when we asked the cheese monger, a young man in his 20’s hailing from Northern Quebec where only cows roam (his words, not mine), to recommend something to us. He asked us where we are from and quickly went to raw milk cheese or “illegal” cheese in New York. 🙂 The recommended cheese was excellent. I wish we would loosen up our regulations to let in more delicious cheese.
