Vacherin Mont d'Or is back! The first batch sold out incredibly fast (less than 24 hours). Our second batch arrived late in the afternoon yesterday. It's 2X the quantity. But that doesn't mean you should put off coming right away. It will be a busy morning, but the queues should move quickly. People will be here for two things: Vacherin, and the 2nd batch of Tourtieres. Wouldn't that be a combo? Perhaps a "You got chocolate in my peanut butter" kind of moment.
You don't have to bake one to enjoy it though. The first batch was dated BB Jan 03, and this new batch is dated BB Jan 10 (Best Before Date). I think they're best eaten the week leading up to the BB date. that means they will be fantastic over the holiday stretch between Christmas Eve and New Years Eve.
They will last a few days past the date, but they will be stronger tasting and smelling. We ate one last January that was a few days past. It tasted fantastic, but we love this cheese, so we're a bit biased.
