ABBAYE DE SAINT-BENOÎT-DU-LAC - Frere Jacques wedge

Starting in 1912, Benedictine monks from France built a monastery overlooking Lake Memphremagog, in Quebec. For over one hundred years, the monks have been making cheese (and cider) at the only Fromagerie in Canada run by Benedictine Monks. 

Frere Jacques is a relatively mild cheese with a pleasantly sweet, slightly acidic aroma, reminiscent of walnuts and fresh fruit. Not unlike Swiss Emmenthal, Frere Jacques has a semi-firm texture with fairly large holes and a nutty, savoury-sweet character.

 

Serve with hearty brown bread or pumpernickel, or alongside Asian pear, apples, or red grapes.
