New Arrival: A cheese that hasn't been sold at Flight before

Return (to) Flight: A cheese that we've had before and is now back

Holiday Special: Only here for the holiday season

HOLIDAY SPECIAL: St. Julien - France

This is a beautiful, soft cheese covered in walnuts with a walnut-cream paste in the center. The cheese is slightly sweet and slightly tart - not unlike a cream cheese! This cheese is perfect for a dessert board, or served on a nice piece of French Toast on Christmas morning. Serve on a salad, on French toast or a nice crusty piece of bread for a delicious treat!

Sold by weight, $11.00/100g

NEW ARRIVAL: Oveja Trufado Blanca - Spain

This cheese may look familiar, but it is definitely something different. This is OVEJA TRUFADO BLANCO - aka White Truffle Manchego! Most people have tried black truffles, but white truffles are much more difficult to find and are therefore rarer to see. White truffles are a lot milder than black truffles, with a warm, earthy, and subtle mushroom/garlic flavour. Because of this, you get to taste the more nuanced flavours of the cheese, and it has many more layers to it compared to the Black Truffle Manchego I’ve stocked for the past few months.

Sold by weight, $14.00/100g

NEW ARRIVAL: Blue Moo - Cow's Creamery, PEI

Blue Moo is a cream-forward, mild "beginner blue" - perfect for those wanting to venture out into the world of blue cheese! Even if you're a blue lover, this is a perfectly balanced blue sure to impress. It's rich and buttery, yet light and flavourful - a great choice for serving to a group of people. Blue Moo is a triple cream blue cheese made with 100% PEI dairy that is thermalized (warmed, but not pasteurized - leaving many of the great microbes and flavour compounds that give PEI cheeses their unique flavour) inspired by recipes from the Orkney Islands in Scotland. Cow's Creamery only started making this cheese at the beginning of 2022 but has already garnered some well-deserved attention around the country!

Sold by weight, $7.50/100g

HOLIDAY SPECIAL: Gigha Apple Whiskey Cheddar - Scotland

Scotland is known for their fantastic cheddars, and this is no exception! Coming from the Isle of Kintyre in Scotland. This cheese is a careful blend of prime quality mature Scottish cheddar flavoured with Highland Liqueur - a special blend of Islay malt whiskey and brandy, specifically designed to complement the high quality & delicious cheese! It’s fruity with a bit of a bite from the whiskey, and is definitely an adorable treat.

Sold individually, $15.99 each

RETURN (TO) FLIGHT: Taleggio - Italy

Attention soft cheese lovers!! This stunning washed rind cheeses is one of my personal favourites. It is one of the oldest known cheeses to come from Italy, and is named after the caves of Val Taleggio. Its scent is quite strong and pungent, but the flavour is relatively mild with a fruity tang and lingering persistence. During the cheesemaking process, the cheese is washed with 5 different types of mold to create its rust coloured rind, and aged for 6-10 weeks. Pairs best with a light, unoaked red wine (such as Barbera), an off-dry wine such as Pinot Gris or Viognier, or Champagne Method Sparkling wines, such as Franciacorta or Cava.

Sold by weight, $8.20/100g

RETURN (to) FLIGHT: Ricotta Salata - Italy

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. This cheese is from the whey from sheep milk which is pressed, salted and aged for at least 90 days. It's milky white with a firm texture and salty taste. Great substitution for feta!

Sold by weight, $6.70/100g

NEW ARRIVAL: Mauri Gorgonzola Dolce - Italy

Not your regular, every day Gorgonzola, this beauty comes from Mauri Fromaggi just outside of Milan in Italy. This cheese is produced with pasteurized cows milk from a single milking and aged in their caves for 60 days. It has a lovely green veining throughout the creamy paste and has a stunning, delicate sweetness to balance out the bite of the blue and its saltiness.

Sold by weight, $7.20/100g

HOLIDAY SPECIAL: Wrangeback - Sweden

This is an exciting cheese from SWEDEN called Wrångebäck, an Alpine style cheese with a wonderful and complex flavour profile. It’s loosely reminiscent of Gruyere, but a little fruitier, nuttier, creamier and yummier! It’s the oldest registered Swedish cheese, dating back to 1889 and is INCREDIBLE with a Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir. Not only is it delicious, but it definitely has the “cool factor” from being from a lesser-known cheese making country!!

Sold by weight, $12.50/100g

HOLIDAY SPECIAL: Old Amsterdam Gouda Christmas Trees - Netherlands

Old Amsterdam Gouda is a tried and true cheese - one of the most top notch Goudas out there! Rich, fudgey, studded with cheese diamonds (aka tyrosine crystals) cut into perfect little trees. Great option for your holiday cheese boards, or just for some festive snacking!

Sold in 150g packages, $14.99 each

Tiger Blue - Poplar Groves, British Columbia

This stunning blue has some teeth to it! Rich, slightly salty with a nice bite. It reminds me of Roquefort, however slightly milder, making it a better option for snacking or cooking. Semi-soft, this cheese is smooth with a little bit of crumble, and pairs beautifully with a big red wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, or a dessert wine such as Tawny Port.

Sold by weight, $11.00/100g

Smoked Gouda - Mountainoak, New Hamburg, Ontario

By popular request, we now have some Smoked Gouda in stock!

This one in particular is from Mountainoak Farmstead Cheeses, a lovely cheesemaker specializing in Dutch-style Goudas. This is a mild gouda smoked over applewood chips, giving it a really lovely, balanced, smokey flavour.

Sold in 225g packages, $12.99 each

Sao Jorge, Portugal

This is Sao Jorge, a Portuguese cheese from the island of the same name in the Azores archipelago. It’s made from raw cow’s milk, and is semi-firm and matured for 7 months. It’s yellowish in colour, and has a firm and slightly waxy texture. The flavour is incredibly interesting - it begins fruity (like olive oil), and then changes into this lovely, persistent zippy/spicy flavour.

This cheese is awesome on its own, or melted on a burger or in a grilled cheese sandwich, and pairs best with a bold red wine or fortified wines such as Port or Madeira.

Sold by weight, $7.50/100g

Pastore Sardo (Pecorino Sardo) - Italy

A Sardinian table cheese, this young pecorino is a delicate and savoury treat! Made from raw sheep's milk, the cheese is semi-firm, slightly acidic and salty, with a mild sweetness. Perfect as a snacking cheese, on an appetizer cheese board or served with a light-bodied red wine.

Sold by weight, $8.30/100g

Caciocavallo - Italy

One of my personal favourites, this Caciocavallo is a stretched-curd cheese which gives it a squeaky kind of texture.. a lot like cheese curds! It's a lot like an aged mozzarella or provolone, and it's so much fun to eat. The name caciocavallo literally means "horse cheese", in Italian, and it's generally thought that the name derives from the fact that two cheese forms are always bound together with rope and left to mature by placing them 'a cavallo', i.e. straddling, upon a horizontal stick or branch.. the way someone would straddle a horse! Don't worry! This cheese isn't made from horse milk.

Sold by weight $8.00/100g

Queso Iberico (6 month) - Spain

This is quite the exciting cheese! Not very often do we see a triple blend of cow, sheep, and goat - but this is one of them! Iberico comes from Spain, and this cheese is produced quite similarly to Manchego, but has the addition of the two other types of milk. It's flavour is quite buttery and nutty, with a moderate persistence. If you love Manchego, this is an awesome substitution.

Sold by weight, $9.00/100g

Jalapeno Peppercorn Cheddar - Creel & Gambrel, Ontario

Creel & Gambrel Jalapeño Peppercorn Cheddar takes rich Ontario cheddar and elevates it to new levels by adding a medley of real Jalapeño peppers and red peppercorns for an irresistible spicy flavor. Pressed into blocks for aging, this savoury cheddar cheese is easy to shred, slice, or cut into cubes.

Creel & Gambrel Jalapeño Peppercorn Cheddar is a mandatory ingredient for any Tex-Mex cuisine, while other popular uses include slicing for burgers, melting for sauces, and making spicy cheddar dips for appetizers.

Pairs best with a big, bold IPA.

Sold in pre-packs, 250g pieces for $8.49

Oveja con Trufa, Spain

By popular request, we now have a new TRUFFLE CHEESE! Coming from La Mancha region in Spain, this cheese is in the style of aged Manchego spotted with black truffles throughout the paste. Its texture is quite crumbly with little crystals scattered throughout. The flavour of the cheese itself is sweet, with notes of grass and caramel - which is quite typical of aged Manchego cheese - and the truffles add a subtle mushroom, woodiness to each bite. Definitely a great gourmet cheese!

Sold by weight, $11.89/100g

Beemster Vlaskaas - Netherlands

Vlaskaas was historically made only once a year, during the flax harvest festival, but as festival traditions fell away, the recipe was buried. Thankfully in 2004, a review of Beemster's past cheeses led to its rediscovery. Vlaskaas was obviously too good to make just once a year and is now available year round! It's buttery with a unique sweet-milk flavour, notes of almond and a touch of sharpness that adds a decadent depth.

Wensleydale with Cranberries - Oak Manor, UK

With Thanksgiving around the corner, this is the perfect cheese to snap up for your appetizer cheese board! Wensleydale is quite similar to White Stilton - slightly sweet, slightly tart, slightly salty - but incredibly well balanced with the addition of cranberries for a festive feel. Works great as an appetizer or a dessert, and is a real treat with a piece of chocolate.

Sold by weight, $7.50/100g

Grey Owl - Quebec

This visually tempting cheese is made with non-animal rennet and pasteurised goats milk. On the outside, the vegetal ash endows the cheese with a wrinkly, dark, slate-coloured and piquant smelling edible rind. The interior paste is firm, crumbly and dense, softening at the edge of the rind. As it melts in your mouth, the smooth and silky texture of the cheese offers pleasing sharp and lemony flavours. Pairs well with a dry Riesling or a nice crisp dry Sauvignon Blanc.

Sold by weight, $9.50/100g

Ciel de Charlevoix - Quebec

Ciel de Charlevoix is a nice and sharp blue with aromas of cream and mushroom. It's creamy, slightly salty with a spicy finish. Very subtle barnyard notes, this cheese reminds me of a toned down Cashel Blue! It has a beautiful dusty grey rind and is a FANTASTIC choice for pairing with dark chocolate. Yum!

Sold by weight, $12.00/100g

Wyke Farms Caramelized Onion

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!

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.

Sold by weight, $8.70/100g

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!

Out of Stock: Chateau de Bourgogne - Burgundy, France

Produced in Burgundy, France in the traditional style of a triple-cream; Chateau de Bourgogne is similar to the famous Brillat-Savarin, arguably one the most delicate of the triple cream brie cheeses. Chateau de Bourgogne has a cake-like shape and a lovely white bloomy rind which encases its silky-smooth, ivory coloured interior. The aroma of Chateau de Bourgogne is creamy and somewhat buttery, with a hint of mushroom. The paste is creamy and rich, melting in your mouth like soft butter, while the slightly bitter rind acts as an excellent balance to the creamy and decadent interior. The richness of Chateau Bourgogne is set off and balanced wonderfully by champagne, but it also pairs well with a red Burgundy, other Pinot Noirs, or a blended red, like a Bordeaux.

Out of Stock: Ubriaco Pinot Rosé - Italy

This beauty is Ubriaco Pinot Rosé! It's a lovely Italian cheese that's been soaked in La Jara Pinot Rosé, a dry sparkling wine and topped with dried rose petals.

If you've had any of the Ubriaco cheeses I've carried in the past, this one will feel very familiar to you - semi-firm, slight sweetness, balanced saltiness and acidity in the paste but with a floral twist.
