RETURN (t0) FLIGHT: Ubriaco al Prosecco - Veneto, Italy

Ubriaco al Prosecco is made from cow's milk, made by Moro Latteria di Moro Sergio, in Veneto, Italy. It's a firmer cheese with a pleasant sharpness and bright, fruity flavour profile. 

Affectionately called as "drunken cheese", the cheese is bathed in gallons of sparkling Prosecco wine along with skins, seeds, and leftovers from the winemaking process to extract the unique sweet, delicate aroma of the wine and complex flavours. The cheese is immersed for about two months and then aged for about 6 months, while the flavours of the wine & cheese develop even further. The fresh and elegantly salted cheese are best served in crumbles or thin shavings and alongside a glass of Prosecco (duh! )

NEW ARRIVAL: Chateau de Bourgogne aux Truffes - France

Man oh man is this one a treat for you truffle lovers!

The Queen of Bries is back with a layer of truffle cream throughout the center paste. Chateau de Bourgogne is a triple cream brie with sweet, salty, acidic, and savoury flavours that just melt in your mouth with the creamiest of creamy textures! When paired with the lovely layer of truffles, there's no way this cheese WOULDN'T be the first to go on a cheese board! Perfect as a Mother's Day gift, too!

Sold in 200g wheels individually, $29.99 each. 

NEW ARRIVAL: Pecorino with Chamomile Flowers - Italy

 Award-winning Pecorino Camomilla is the result of Paolo Farabegoli’s unflagging devotion to recreating and perfecting his grandmother’s sheep’s milk cheeses that were aged in pine boxes of fresh cut chamomile. This helped to preserve the cheese while it aged and also infused the cheese with its heady floral scent and gentle flavor. This one-of-a-kind pecorino is made from the milk from Comisana, Lacaune and Sarda sheep in the Emilio Romagna region of Italy. After aging for 2 months, Camomilla is ready.  This stunning cheese has an incredible aroma of hay and chamomile. Once opened, the semi-soft wonder has hints of herbal sweetness and fresh cut apples.

• Winner of 5 World Cheese  Awards, including Gold in 2018-2019.

• Made from pasteurized sheep's milk

Sold by weight, $9.00/100g or $35 for the entire 500g wheel

RETURN (t0) FLIGHT: MountainOak Gouda with Nettles - Ontario

It's spring time! And very few things scream SPRING to me than a light, herby cheese! This is a young Gouda from Mountain Oak Gouda in New Hamburg, Ontario flavoured with Wild Stinging Nettles. When growing strong, nettles have microscopic hairs that contain an acid that can give you a rash or irritated skin. When nettles are cooked, however, that acid disappears and we're left with a light, delicious herb! Its flavour is somewhere in between spinach and parsley, and is a lovely compliment to this cheese. 

Try it melted, on a salad, or solo on a cheese board!

Sold individually in 225g pieces, $15.99

NEW ARRIVAL: Chabichou d'Antan - France

A classic Loire-valley lactic goat cheese, Chabichou has origins with the Arab communities who settled with their goat herds in the region centuries ago. The rind is decorated with distinctive geotricum mould, which makes the cheese look like a brain, and the paste is lactic and ranging from chalky to smooth and creamy depending on its level of maturity. The flavour is fresh, lactic and slightly citrusy with a hint of classic goat flavour. 

Sold in $19.99

RETURN (t0) FLIGHT: Tomme de Savoie - France

Tomme de Savoie is a raw cow's milk cheese and is actually made from skim milk instead of full fat milk or cream! They skim off the cream to make butter, giving this cheese quite a low fat content, coming in somewhere between 25-40%. But don't let that fool you - this cheese is semi-soft and has a similar texture to a young double cream Brie!

It's a natural rinded cheese, which gives it a really exciting appearance but also a fantastic flavour profile. It's earthy, mushroom-y, slightly salty but still quite fresh tasting. Really great paired with a light red wine or used in place of Raclette. Yum!

Sold by weight, $8.79/100g

RETURN (t0) FLIGHT: Scamorza Affumicata - Italy 

This adorable little guy is Scamorza Affumicata - technically translated to “smoked cheese”, this one definitely packs more of a punch than its name suggests! Scamorza is a stretched curd cheese, not unlike mozzarella, but with a little bit of a different production process. The curds of scamorza are cut much smaller than those for mozzarella, which doesn’t let it hold on to as much moisture. This cheese is on the firmer side, and smoked over certified wood chips, giving it its strong & smokey flavour. When you use this cheese in a recipe, it almost lends a bacon-like flavour to your dish — salty, smokey, meaty, but with the texture of mozzarella. AMAZING on pizza or in an omelette, this is a fantastic cheese to keep in your fridge for cooking!

I received one of these as a gift from my supplier for Christmas, and when I tell you I savoured every little bit of it… I savoured. Every. Last. Bite. YUM!

Sold in 270g balls, $16.99 each

RETURN (t0) FLIGHT: Creel & Gambrel Smoked Cheddar - Ontario

This lovely smoked cheddar is made with pasteurized cow's milk and aged for two years before being smoked over Applewood to give it its signature sweet & nutty flavour with a pleasant sharpness. Best enjoyed with ales, lagers or smoked beers. 

Sold by weight, $6.20/100g 

NEW ARRIVAL: Tete a Papineau - Quebec

Coming from Fromagerie Montebello in Montebello, QC, this is a funky washed rind cheese with a savoury, almost cheddary vibe. It's aged for 60 days and has a characteristic sticky orange rind that has flavours of creme fraiche, salted butter, hazelnuts with a clean, yet sharp flavour. It's on the milder side of the funky cheese realm, and would make a wicked steak and cheese sandwich! It's made with pastuerized cow's milk and its name makes reference to a common French expression, "ca ne prend pas la tete a Papineau", meaning that you don't need to be as smart as Louis-Joseph Papineau to understand a situation! 

Sold by weight, $11.29/100g 

NEW ARRIVAL: Macpherson de l'Isle - Quebec

Here at Flight Cheese Shop, we love all cheeses, but especially those with a vein of vegetable ash through the center! Macpherson de l'Isle is a washed rind cheese with a semi-soft texture. Its flavour is slightly sweet and creamy with a subtle funk throughout the rind. To me, it feels like if-Quebec-made-Morbier-it-would-be-this. Really enjoyable cheese to eat!

Named after James MacPherson LeMoine (1825-1912) who was one of the nobles who left their mark on Isle-aux-Grues. He was a strong advocate for an environment where French Canadians and English Canadians could coexist happily, without political or religious strife, and the layer of ash through the center of the cheese is representative of the harmonious cohabitation of the two peoples. 

Sold by weight, $11.29/100g 

RETURN(to) FLIGHT: Buffalo Mozzarella - Pont Reale, Campagnia, Italy

Everyone knows that fresh Italian cheeses are fantastic, but truly, this one has easily impressed me the most. This Buffalo Mozzarella comes from Campagnia, Italy and is made with whole buffalo milk. It has such a full flavour for a mild cheese, and its texture is almost airy - so soft and absolutely melts in your mouth. Perfect for salads, pizzas, or just enjoying on its own with some fresh tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. 

Buffalo milk's proteins and fats are super easy for our bodies to digest while still having a relatively low caloric content. The buffalo roam on part of the Matese Regional Park protected lands, at the border between Campania and Molise regions. Ponte Reale has made it their mission to provide extremely high quality cheeses while respecting the land, the animals, and the traditions. 

*Expiry date is May 14 - giving them away until they're gone!*

Sold in 125g wheels, $12.99 each

Ciambella Trifulo - Italy

Truffle lovers, this one's for you! Made with raw cow's milk, this cheese is speckled with summer truffles from the region. The cheese is made with the Kinara Method, meaning that instead of using animal or synthetic rennet, La Fattorie Fiandino (the producer) uses a special flower from a wild thistle to make the cheese - meaning this one is 100% vegetarian! The cheese is semi-firm, with a melt-in-your-mouth, smooth and luxurious texture. The flavour of the truffles is prominent, but complimented by the subtle earthiness of the cheese. Ciambella is a traditional Piedmontese breakfast cake that's shaped like a Bundt cake, and the name of this cheese is inspired by the cake!

Sold by weight, $14.90/100g 

Bonnechere - Back40 - Mississippi Station, ON

The rugged Bonnechere River and the mysterious Bonnechere Caves are unique landmarks of the Ottawa Valley. A distinct feature of our Bonnechere is the rind that is toasted over an open flame before aging. This painstaking process, traditional for certain Basque cheeses, imparts a delicious caramel essence which permeates the body of the cheeses as it ages, and provides a delicious contrast to the tangy and fruity body of the cheese. Pairs best with Pinot Noir, dark Ale or smoked beers.

Sold by weight, $9.00/100g

Only ~500g available

Back 40 Swiss Style - Mississippi Station, ON

This is a super delicious sheeps milk swiss style cheese from Back40 Cheeses in Mississippi Station, ON. Officially, it's unnamed because this is one of only a handful of wheels that I am super fortunate to be one of the first people EVER to receive and carry it!

This cheese falls into the Alpine cheese flavour profiles - it's nutty and smooth with an addicting bite that would be AMAZING on a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich or melted onto French Onion Soup... if it can make it long enough to be used in your recipe without being eaten first!! It has a stunning natural rind to protect the firm inner goodness, and is super delicious with strawberries or grapes. It's made with sheeps milk instead of the "typical" cows milk for alpine style, which gives this cheese an extra layer of flavour that is unbelievably scrumptious.

If you're a fan of cheeses like Appenzeller, Gruyere, Wrangeback or Emmental, this is definitely an incredible choice for you!

Sold by weight, $11.00/100g

Chateau de Bourgogne - France

Sometimes known as The Cadillac of Bries, it's pretty hard to find something that can improve this delicious cheese. From the region of Burgundy in France, this bloomy-rind, triple-cream brie will blow you away! The rind of this cheese is typical of a brie, a bit on the thicker side with a puffy, white rind, but the inner paste is almost like a savoury whipped cream - buttery, slightly salty, slightly sweet and absolutely scrumptious! Enjoy this cheese spread on a flavourful cracker with some of your favourite spreads, or solo! Pairs well with sparkling wine, dry Riesling, Pinot Grigio or Viognier.

Sold in 200g wheels, $19.99 each

Old Amsterdam Gouda - Netherlands

This lovely Gouda comes from just outside the town of Gouda in the Netherlands, and is aged for at least 2 years. It has a rich, caramel/brown butter flavour and is spotted with tyrosine crystals (also lovingly referred to as “Cheese Diamonds”) which give this creamy cheese a delicious crunch! Following the typical flavour profile of a mature Gouda, this is a fantastic choice for those who like firmer and sharper cheeses that don't veer too far from normal.  Definitely a cheese to pair with your favourite red wines.

Sold in 200g packages, $15.99 each

Beurre d'Isigny Demi-Sale - France

Perhaps not the splurge for everyone, I thought it would be fun to bring in a special butter for the holiday season, and it sold out so fast I decided to bring it in again!! 

This BUTTER (not cheese, but butter!!!) is a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) butter from Isigny-sur-Mer in the North West of France, and is unlike any other butter you likely would have had before. It has a buttercup yellow colour and slightly hazelnutty flavour profile, and has followed a slow, traditional fermentation process that helps it develop its distinctive aromas and flavours. 

What makes this butter different than the butter you're used to? A few things -- the Isigny region has a warm and humid climate, and is close in proximity to the ocean and marshes. The cows, therefore, feed on grass that is rich in iodine, beta-carotene and micronutrients, giving the butter its own unique flavour! This butter is 100% natural, and has a fat content of at least 82% (for reference, Canadian butter is only 80%) with tons of Vitamin A and E. This butter contains no artificial flavours, preservatives or colouring. This butter also goes through a special production process called tourage that gives it a malleable yet firm texture, and is favoured by French pastry chefs when making light & airy puff pastries and crispy baked goods with buttery flavour! 

For more information on this particular butter, visit the Isigny website here.

Sold in 250g baskets, $27.99 each

Picobello - Netherlands

Picobello is a super interesting Dutch cheese with an Italian name! Rumoured to be a Gouda that's inspired by Parmigiano Reggiano, this cheese is an ultra-delicious one that's great for snacking. Chock full of tyrosine crystals (aka cheese diamonds), the texture of this cheese is perfectly balanced between slightly creamy and crunchy/crumbly with the abundance of crystals. Picobello has the characteristic flavour of a Gouda - creamy, caramelly, butterscotchy goodness - with the texture of a well aged Italian cheese!

Sold by weight, $9.00/100g 

Shropshire Blue - UK 

Shropshire Blue is a blue cheese made from pasteurized cows' milk and uses vegetable rennet. It's orange colour comes from the addition of annatto, a natural food colouring, and has a moderate amount of blue veining. It tastes much like a cheddar cheese with a hint of blue, and uses the same recipe as Stilton blue, giving it a familiar but unique flavour profile. This cheese is perfect for snacking or on salads, and pairs beautifully with any red wine.

Sold by weight, $10.50/100g 

Guinness Cheddar - Ireland 

What better way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day than with an Irish cheddar with Guinness! This lovely cheese is a mature Irish cheddar that is marbled with Guinness beer to give it its stunning appearance! The cheese is slightly sweet and malty with a caramel undertone, and pairs perfectly with your favourite dark beers. Even if you're not a huge fan of dark beers (or Guinness specifically), the veining isn't too overwhelming. I've even had a few people tell me that they enjoy the cheese even though they hate the beer!

I know the label says Irish Porter, but the ingredients list does actually say Guinness!!! (Proof Here). 

Sold by weight, $9.95/100g

Saganash - Ontario

This is a decadent, firm sheeps milk cheese from Fromagerie Kapuskoise in Kapuskasing, Ontario. It's just the right amount of salty and earthy, with a very distinct rich, umami-forward flavour. Not only is it great in place of a Pecorino for cooking, this is a 10/10 cheese for snacking, grating, or shaving!

Sold by weight, $10.50/100g

Godminster Heart Cheddars - UK

This deliciously melt-in-the-mouth cheddar cheese is made to a traditional 90-year-old recipe and matured for up to 12 months, at which point Godminster selects the very best cheese to be made into one of their award-winning truckles. This heart-shaped Vintage Bruton Beauty cheese has a rich depth of flavour with a smooth texture that’s irresistibly delicious and will make you come back for more!  

Sold in 200g heart shaped wheels, $18.99 each

Le Fleurmier de Charlevoix - Quebec

Fleurmier is a typical soft cheese with a bloomy rind of the Camembert type. The milk comes from the Gouffre valley in Baie-Saint-Paul. It’s rich and velvety paste has a fruity and nutty flavor without any aftertaste. Its texture improves with age and its taste develops without bitterness. Its name comes from the words fleur meaning bloom and fermier – meaning farmer!

Sold in 200g wheels, $16.99 each

Creel & Gambrel 5 Year Aged Cheddar - Ontario

Another local favourite! Our 5 Year Aged Cheddar is not your average cheddar. Beautifully aged, this cheese is tangy with crystals, crumbles (but not too much!) and will accentuate any typical cheese pairing you can think of. 

Pair with your favourite wine - red or white - and enjoy alongside some fruit or jellies.  

Sold by weight, $5.80/100g 

Kapuskasing Chevre - Ontario

One of my best sellers is Kapuskasing from Fromagerie Kapuskoise, up North in (you guessed it) Kapuskasing, Ontario. I've been eyeing the goats milk version (top) for quite a while, and decided 2024 is the year we try it out!

This cheese is slightly more tart than the "original" Kapuskasing (bottom), with the familiar light, salty, creamy flavour we know and love with its signature layer of vegetable ash throughout the center. Works beautifully in a salad or accompanied with fresh fruit, but can also stand its own on a cheese board. 

Goats milk is known for having a considerably lower amount of lactose than cows milk, so many people with lactose intolerance are able to tolerate goats cheeses without any issues! 

Sold by weight, $8.70/100g 

Cow's Creamery 2017 Reserve Cheddar - PEI

Aged for an impressive 6 years, this delicious PEI cheddar is a real treat for the holidays! The recipe for this cheddar comes from the Orkney Islands, just north of Mainland Scotland, yet this particular cheese has its very own unique flavour profile. The salty air and iron-rich soil of PEI give this aged cheddar a rich and full-bodied flavour with a tangy bite. The milk for this cheese is thermalized - not pasteurized - to give an even more complex depth of flavour. 

Perfect choice for a gift or to serve on a holiday cheese board!

Sold by weight, $8.00/100g

Kapuskasing - Fromagerie Kapuskoise, Ontario

Named after the town in which the cheese is made, Kapuskasing (kah-pus-kay-sing) is based off of Morbier cheese from France. This cheese has a beautiful layer of vegetable ash in the center of the wheel, which is a classic cheesemaking technique from the Jura region in France. Cheesemaker Francois Nadeau was travelling in Asia, where cheese is scarce, and decided he wanted to pursue cheesemaking so he would never have to go without it. His new found passion brought him to Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec for basic training, and then to France for more in depth training. Morbier, the cheese Kapuskasing is based on, was born from the by-products of Comte. Traditionally, cheesemakers would take the leftover curd from the morning milking and cover them with ashes to preserve them, and then did the same thing with the afternoon curd and pressed the cheese into Morbier. The cheese was so delicious, it is now produced with its own dedicated source of milk, but with the layer of ash in the middle to preserve the tradition.

Fried Marcona Almonds with Truffles - Spain

These are FRIED MARCONA ALMONDS WITH TRUFFLE from Antonio Romero. Marcona Almonds are a sweet, gourmet type of almond grown in Spain that has a growing popularity around the world, but more specifically in the Mediterranean. Their texture is almost closer to that of a macadamia nut, and they're shaped a little differently from your "standard" almonds. Nutritionally, there is a minimal difference between Marcona and regular almonds, but in FLAVOUR?! Now that's a whole other story.

Marcona almonds are much sweeter, more moist, and softer than your typical almond, and it has a more buttery flavour. When paired with the dusting of truffle salt on these bad boys. O.M.G. they are amazing.

Out of Stock: Cashel Blue - Ireland 

When Louis and Jane Grubb set out to make Cashel Blue in the early 1980s, their ambition was to create a farmhouse cheese that "truly represents the outstanding quality of Tipperary grass-fed milk". Today, 40 years later and in the hands of the second generation, Cashel Blue is still made by hand on the same 200 acre farm in Tipperary, Ireland. The cheese is big and bold, with strong blue flavour and a slight barnyard flavour profile. Not for the faint of heart, this cheese packs a big, blue punch!

Out of Stock: Mimolette (24 Month) - France

It’s been aged for 24 months with the help of some little critters (bear with me) called cheese mites!! Don’t worry, it’s nothing like Casu Marzu (don’t google that if you’re squeamish) but the cheese mites lend Mimolette its characteristic flavour around the rind. It’s rumoured to be originally made by the request of Louis XIV who wanted a French product to replace the then popular Edam from the Netherlands. The cheese is super rich, crumbly and reminiscent of a reaaalllyyyy old cheddar or gouda. It’s coloured bright orange by the addition of annatto, a classic cheese ingredient in pretty much any orange cheese. The perfect cheese for you aged-cheese-fanatics!

Sold by weight, $12.50/100g

It's semi-firm, with a fruity, slightly salty, and deliciously goat-y flavour. Pairs best with a medium bodied and fruity red wine, ideally from Spain, such as Tempranillo! 

The milk for this cheese comes from the Murciano-Granadina goat breed, known as the best milk producing breed in Spain! The milk gives this cheese a little bit of a decadent edge over your standards goats milk cheeses.

Out of Stock: Roquefort Carles - France

The King of Blues, this stunning Roquefort is made from the raw milk of Laucaune sheep and aged in the limestone caves of Combalou, France. This big and beautiful blue is ultra creamy, salty and full of pristine blue flavour - no extra flavourings, barnyard notes or funk. Just straight up amazing blue! Roquefort has been around for centuries; Julius Caesar has been rumoured to encounter it in the first century BC during their conquest of Gaul, and its arguably one of the most famous cheeses worldwide. 

(Maybe not so) FUN FACT: When Roquefort is being aged in the limestone caves, the wheels are actually placed inside of Dark Rye Bread loaves, which lends the cheese its unique flavour. This also means that Roquefort isn't suitable for those who have issues with consuming gluten.

Out of Stock: Langres - France

Langres is a soft, washed rind cheese from the Champagne region in France. One of the huge tenets of pairings is "what grows together goes together", and this cheese is a fantastic example of that! The best way to serve Langres is by pouring some Champagne (or any traditional method sparkling wine) over the cheese and enjoying a glass of the wine with it. This cheese has a small dimple on the top, formally known as the "fontaine" (fountain in French, if you see where we're going with this) which is where you pour about 4oz of the wine onto the cheese and let it flow down around the wheel before you cut into it. The bubbles in the wine balance out the salty, fudgy richness of the cheese and compliment its funky, yeasty, biscuity flavour that is concentrated on the rind.

This lovely cheese is from Sicily, Italy and is the older sister of the popular Ricotta cheese! The word "Ricotta" means re-cooked and "Salata" means salted.

Out of Stock: St. Agur - France

Made with pasteurized cow's milk, St. Agur is a one-of-a-kind blue! Soft and creamy, this blue packs a punch. Officially, St. Agur is a double-cream cheese because of the addition of cream during the cheesemaking process. St. Agur isn't quite as salty as other blues such as Roquefort or Stilton, but it's incredibly balanced, ensuring a fantastic flavour with each bite.

Out of Stock: Wakusimi - Kapuskasing, Ontario

Dare I say this cheese may have eclipsed Kapuskasing as my favourite cheese from Fromagerie Kapuskoise?! 

Wakusimi is a pressed cheese made from pasteurized cows milk with beautiful vegetable ash veining throughout its paste. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, this cheese is delicious. It tastes as if Kapuskasing and an aged cheddar had a baby - flavours of milk, salt, subtle earthiness and a touch of acidity, this cheese is nothing but a pleasure to snack on! It has a very similar texture to Kapuskasing as well, but maybe a touch less moisture. Enjoy this cheese with some fresh fruit or spreads, and you'll have an incredibly delectable snack on your hands that certainly won't last long!!!

Out of Stock: Monte Enebro - Spain

Full flavoured and boldly goaty, Monte Enebro is a stunning goats milk cheese from just outside of Madrid in Spain. The rind of the cheese is not covered in ash as its appearance may seem, but it's actually ripened with pennicilium roqueforti - the same mold used in many blue cheeses! The main difference, is that instead of inoculating the cheese and spreading the mold throughout the interior, it is just used on the exterior, giving the cheese a spicy, peppercorn-like bite to complement the robust paste. Monte Enebro is only made by one producer in Spain, and has won countless awards around the world. Lovers of Grey Owl will surely appreciate this one!

Out of Stock: Black Olive Manchego - Spain

Visually exciting and deliciously savoury, this Manchego-style cheese from Spain is made with a black olive tapenade veining throughout its paste. The flavour of the cheese itself is pretty bang on for a typical Manchego, however the black olives give it a salty, umami and super savoury flavour. Definitely my favourite of the flavoured Manchegos I've carried in the past!

Out of Stock: Kaiser Raclette - Quebec

In keeping with his Swiss heritage, Mr. Fritz Kaiser is a master of Raclette cheese-making. This beautiful cheese is a semi-soft, surface-ripened cheese that is aged for approximately 8 weeks. It has a subtle flavour of hazelnut, with notes of milk and butter. It's name originates from the French word 'racler', meaning 'to scrape', which is a reference to scraping the melted cheese from the wheel, onto potatoes. To see a video, click here!

Not necessarily meant to be on a cheese board, try Raclette as a fondue or melted on your favourite dishes alongside a dry White wine. 

Raclette is best when served melted on a raclette machine and served with fruits, veggies, meats and bread. It makes for a fantastic dinner party where all your guests get to participate in the making of the meal! We rent raclette machines and have a thorough guide on what it is!
