September 2017 Cheese Club

almonte-cheese-club-peches-et-poivre

Fall is my favourite time of the year!  Usually, September provides relief from the heat and humidity of August and leaves begin their transformation to stunning shows with shades of orange, red and yellow.  The weather is perfect to get together with friends for a last picnic or for a walk in the woods, and apples are ready to be picked.

It is also a great time of the year to enjoy wine and cheese!  (When isn’t?)  This month, cheese club members will have a selection of cheeses to savour on their own or to incorporate in cooking.  You could make croutons with Perles de chèvre and use them as topping on hot squash soup, Le Délice des Appalaches for making Broccoli Cheddar and Apple Gratin or the 4 year cheddar with a warm apple pie.  Delicious!

August 2017 Cheese Club

August is a month of bountiful harvest where farmer’s markets offer freshly picked tomatoes, zucchini, onions and so much more.  This month, in Cheese Club, we have taken into account the offerings from the gardens.  The cheeses for this month use herbs, vegetables and fruits as accompaniments; Le Noble benefits from the flavour of basil or honey and berries; Le Mozzarella is a perfect tomato pleaser and Le Moutier on rye bread and tomato, Yum!
