Cheese Heaven!

At recent small reception for an author I was lucky enough to chat to the wonderful Cole Snell, owner of About Cheese. He was sampling the rarest of rare Canadian artisanal cheese Le Secret de Maurice from cheesemaker Maurice Dufour from the Charlevoix region of Quebec.

This seminal runny, and I mean seriously runny ripened cheese is best served as an appetizer says Cole. We cut off the top, too runny to cut into, and he gave me a spoon and I literally scooped out the cheese. Who says you need a cracker. It was sublime. Made completely  from sheep's milk with a delicate flavour - pair it with a lovely S. Blanc or Pinot Grigio on a hot summers day and this could be supper!
