August 2019 Cheese Club

This Month Cheese Club features 3 Quebec cheeses. Part of the club is a creamy and fresh Boursin type cheese La Fréchette from La Fromagerie Nouvelle France of Racine, a creamy, wonderful fresh Mozzarella from Fromagerie la Table Ronde of St-Sophie and from la Fromagerie du Presbytère, from St-Élizabeth de Warwick, the Award winning Louis D’Or.
