Abondance, Délice de Bourgogne, and Roaring Forties. What a cheese feast. Thx to Delaney Bay for recommending them.

I picked up 3 gorgeous cheeses yesterday from Delaney Bay Cheese Shop in North Bay. Abondance, Délice de Bourgogne, and Roaring Forties. What a feast!

Abondance is a semi-hard, unpasteurized, cow’s milk cheese that comes from Haute-Savoie in France,close to the Swiss border. The cheese has been produced since the 12th century, originally by monks. This is a easy to love cheese with a hint of smoke.

Délice de Bourgogne, is a French cow’s milk cheese from Burgundy France. Its rich creaminess comes from the cheesemaking process. Cream fraiche is added twice to the milk during the making of it. The cheese also has a bold pungent aroma imparted by its ripening process. Delicious!

Roaring Forties Blue Cheese is made by the Kings Island Dairy, on a smal island just north of Tasmania. It’s a handcrafted cow’s milk cheese made from milk from Australian cows. This is a bold flavoured blue that’s sweet, mild, creamy and a little bit nutty in character. The rindless cheese is matured in its thick black wax coating, which cuts off the oxygen supply, enhancing its sweet and fruity flavor.

Pair with Viewpointe Auxerrois, a white wine with legendary food pairing ability.

Thanks to Lonnie Reed for recommending them. I am indebted.
