This month we are featuring two very different cheeses made by the same cheesemaker, Fromagerie Au Gré des Champs, along with the third cheese from Fromagerie Le Detour.
This month’s cheese for charity is the wonderful BEAU’S, from Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheese in Woodstock Ontario
This Month Cheese Club features 3 Quebec cheeses. Two are from the Lac St-Jean Region, le 14 ARPENTS and VALBERT. The third one, LA MADELAINE is from Racine in the Eastern Township. They are so yummy and perfect for a gathering on the patio.
Just to recap, in our Cheese of the Month program, we select one Great Canadian Cheese, tell you a little about it and then donate 10% of the proceeds of sales of this monthly cheese to a local charitable organization. Last year, through various initiatives, Peches & Poivre donated in the neighbourhood of $1000.00 to local causes. Click on the photo to take you to our website and see which charity was chosen by our people’s poll, to receive proceeds of this year’s Cheese of the Month program.
