The 14 Arpents is a farmstead cheese made from the pasteurized whole milk of the brown Swiss cows. Made in square moulds, its pale-copper rind encloses a semi-soft, buttercup-yellow paste that smells of fresh milk. You will get a slight barny note and a not-unpleasant tinge of bitterness from the washed-rind, but on the palate this cheese is overwhelmingly smooth and creamy with hints of nuts, tang and salt. The flavour becomes more pronounced as it ages.
The cheese is named after a road that borders the cheese dairy, le chemin 14 Arpents (14 acres)
Produced in Quebec.
