Ile-aux-Grues Cheddar is an excellent example of french Canadian Cheddar. This firm, rindless cheese is made with milk drawn exclusively from the dairy farms on the island. This picturesque location fosters subtle flavours in this cheese that are unique to Île-aux-Grues. The 2-year-old Cheddar has a firmer texture that is dry and granular and a more robust taste, with a more pronounced hazelnut flavour. It is firm pressed cheese has a creamy yellow colour and a smooth texture.
So grab some Mestemacher Pumpernickle, smear it with Dubon Dijon Mustard. Then add thin slices of this gorgeous cheese, La Cultura Beef Bresaola and gherkin pickles. Finish with cracked pepper and you, my friend, are in open-faced sandwich heaven.
