The cheesemaker: Fritz Kaiser, Noyan, Quebec
Mr. Fritz Kaiser, master cheese maker and leading pioneer in the creation of Canadian ‘Raclette’ specializes in the production of firm and semi-firm, washed rind cheeses. Situated in Noyan, Mr. Fritz Kaiser began crafting his cheeses in 1981 according to traditions from his homeland Switzerland.
The cheese: Le Mouton noir
Le mouton noir is semi-soft cheese made from pasteurized cow’s milk.
Under its black edible film is a smooth and creamy white cheese with a slightly tangy taste of fresh milk.
Excellent melt qualities. A good replacement for cow’s milk mozzarella.
It is perfect with an amber beer or a fruity, vibrant wine such as Pinot Gris.
