***NOTE: I am retweeting this as the 14 Arpent article was not yet out when first posted. Enjoy. La Fromagerie on College also now carries the cheese.
The creamy and luxurious 14 Arpents cheese from Fromagerie Médard is the subject of The Wedge today (with recent changes to the Globe Arts and Life section, The Spread is now The Wedge). Other than promoting this lovely cheese all over the place the blog allows me to give a shout-out to a great new artisinal product I recently tried,Vicky’s Flatbreads.
Made in Toronto, the flat breads are named after the wife of creator Richard Bedford. They come in two flavours: Original and Rosemary.
Quite addictive, you first experience the crisp CRUNCH followed by great flavour– I can taste the sesame seeds, poppy seeds and olive oil that go into them.
Yet, the flavour is not so pronounced that they wouldn’t make an excellent showcase for cheese, dips, or pates.
And considering they’re healthy (low in salt, no sugar, no preservatives or trans fats AND Kosher) you can eat as many as you want! Or so I tell myself.
Look for them at small retailers in Toronto such as Alex Farm Products on Bayview Ave., Culinarium, Harvest Wagon, Summerhill Market and Pusateri’s, Olympic Cheese and Scheffler’s Delicatessen in St. Lawrence Market. You’ll also find them at The Village Grocer in Markham and Vincenzo’s in Waterloo.
Here is a link to a short piece with a little more background on Richard and Vicky’s Flatbreads.
