Canada – Artisan Cheeses of Quebec
Episode 3, from Season 4
The Canadian province of Quebec is undergoing a cheese-making revival. Will visits the area to find out if the original French settlers and their culture have had any influence on this renaissance. After finding the oldest traditional cheese still made in North America, he visits pretty lle-aux-Grues in the St Lawrence River to learn how a small cheddar producer is adapting to the changing market. Will then heads to Montréal to visit a Benedictine monastery that makes Quebec’s oldest blue cheese, and comes across a singing ‘shepherd’ before heading for the local markets, where he meets some of the main players in the burgeoning cheese movement.
