A cheese that’s like taking a bite of butter: pure Bliss

Bliss cheese and butter from Ontario’s Monforte Dairy.

I have patiently been waiting for Bliss. I first sampled the new cheese from Ontario’s Monforte Dairy last summer when it was still unnamed and still a work-in-progress. In my mind, it simply became the “is it ready yet?” cheese as I anticipated it hitting Monforte’s market stalls on a regular basis. Cheese-maker and owner Ruth Klahsen has been fiddling with the recipe for many months (adjusting temperature in the drying room, for instance, to achieve a softer texture). Finally this spring, Bliss has began making regular appearances on the sales table.

Bliss is a soft, bloomy rind cheese made of sheep milk and enriched with cow’s cream from Mapleton’s Organic in Moorefield, Ont., which makes it extra luxurious. And though you wouldn’t walk around with a bottle of cream tucked in your lunch bag, you can get the same pleasure from a wedge of Bliss – just packaged more practically.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely.

And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
