14 Arpents cheese: nuanced, complex and full of flavour – The Globe and Mail

Sue Riedl is back with what looks to be a tasty cheese from Quebec. Surprising how little Canadian cheese makes it down here. Hey Sue! Slip me a care package! 😉

14 Arpents from Quebec
(Deborah Baic /The Globe and Mail)

There are many great cheeses, but not all of them are crowd-pleasers. The “life of the cheeseboard” can’t be middle-of-the-road or boring, it should be nuanced, complex and full of flavour, but it must also play to the room. Quebec’s 14 Arpents or is such a cheese. Made in square moulds, its pale-copper rind encloses a semi-soft, buttercup-yellow paste that smells of fresh milk. You will get a slight barny note and a not-unpleasant tinge of bitterness from the washed-rind, but on the palate this cheese is overwhelmingly smooth and creamy with hints of nuts, tang and salt.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
