Don't wait until the last minute to purchase. It usually sells out before the 24th.
Vacherin Mont d'Or
This inimitable soft cheese is produced and ripened among the dark forests and rich pastures of the Jura mountains in the canton of Vaud. For more than a century it has been made here in small local cheese dairies. The cheese is finished in the traditional cellars where it develops its flavour with the distinctive taste of tannin drawn from its girdle of local pine bark. Vacherin Mont-d’Or is a seasonal cheese, so there is only a small window when it is available in Vancouver.
Just as with great wines, to allow its flavour to fully emerge it must be allowed to "breath" at room temperature for a few hours before eating. When it is ready it becomes slightly runny and to enjoy its smooth, creamy, texture it is best eaten with a spoon. Connoisseurs also appreciate it as a dessert, or as an evening meal, served heated with Helmer's potatoes or crusty bread.
Expected Arrival: Approximately Dec 8-10, possibly the week after.
We have lots on order. No need to reserve
We are expecting two sizes this year. Small +/- 500g, and 2 kg wheels that we can cut you a wedge from.
