Le Mi-Carême

Flavors of Côte-du-Sud (Bas Saint-Laurent / Chaudière-Appalachians)

This is a cheese for sophisticated palates. The soft, smooth cheese has a fresh hazelnut and mushroom flavour that intensifies with time. During aging the rind becomes light orange. Mi-Careme is a perfect dessert cheese.
