Bleu Benedictin Canadian Blue Cheese

By: Cheese Secrets — Posted on May 29, 2012

Bleu Benedictin Canadian Blue Cheese is Crafted by Monks in the Heart of the Benedictine Abbey of Saint-Benoît-du-Lac, Quebec.

Bleu Benedictin is a whole milk, semi-soft cheese. The aroma is reminiscent of mushroom and the cheese has a creamy, light salty flavour palette. Deeply-veined with Roquefort penicillin mold gives the cheese it’s blue inside speckling. A wheel of Bleu Benedictin weighs 2 kg, has a whitish-grey skin and comes wrapped in gold foil.  It is an aged version of Bleu Ermite.   The middle of a wheel is particularly creamy.

Bleu Benny is the perfect strength as an introduction to the family of blue cheese. Excellent in salads, or on a hamburger – heaven.  Great for sauces or dips.  Enjoy with a fruity and sweet wine.

Check one of the many local wineries in the Niagara-on-the-Lake region.
