Product Details

COMFORT CREAM- 300g- Upper Canada Cheese Co.

Camembert has an APO designation (Appellation d’Origine Protégée) which ensures that the cheese is made with strictly controlled ingredients and in a defined location.  One of these is the requirement to be made in a specific region of France.

Hence, although they cannot use the moniker “camembert’ to officially describe the cheese, Comfort Cream is a true camembert style and not to be mistaken with Brie.

Comfort Cream’s higher ratio of rind to paste produces a slightly stronger profile when compared to a brie ripened for the same amount of time. Once the rind is cut on Comfort Cream it has a more pungent aroma than brie. The texture is softer than brie, and if warmed Comfort Cream will become creamier, whereas brie warms without losing as much structure.

TASTING NOTES

Comfort Cream is a camembert-style soft, white bloomy rind cheese with a silky, creamy, golden interior. Rich flavours of fresh truffles prevail with an intense, buttery palate and a long, tangy finish. This delicate artisanal cheese is hand salted, hand turned and hand wrapped. They store Comfort Cream in a temperature and humidity-controlled cellar at exactly 95RH and 51C for at least 4 weeks before sale. An additional few weeks of aging will see the cheese ripen and mature in flavour, texture and colour.
