A Taste of Quebec: Miranda and Zacharie Cloutier
Everyone knows of France and it's delicious cheeses, but what about another French-speaking province: Quebec? Jill of Cheese and Champagne recently paid a visit to Canada and discovered two delectable Quebecois cheeses: Miranda, and Zacharie Cloutier.
I traveled to Vancouver recently for the wedding of some college friends, and our quick visit had to include a stop at a local cheese shop. Les Amis du Fromage, run by the mother/daughter team of Alice & Allison Spurrell, carries cheeses from a number of countries, but I took the opportunity to pick up several Canadian cheeses since they are scarce in Minneapolis. I was particularly impressed with two specimens from Quebec – a nutty, Swiss-style cheese called Miranda and a raw sheep’s-milk beauty, Zacharie Cloutier.
