The Mattagami river flows through Smooth Rock Falls and Timmins, East of Kapuskasing.
The Mattagami is inspired by a French cheese (we are no longer legally allowed to name it lol), which is considered to be the ancestor of the Cheddar and popular during the Roman Empire. The Mattagami distinguishes itself from this said French cheese by its weight (10 to 15 kg instead of 40) and its shape.
This cheese pairs well with red wine or dry white wines, and can be treated as a Cheddar in recipes.
Disclaimer: in an attempt to be as transparent as possible we are putting this disclaimer. One of our groups’ values is “We aim to produce nutrient dense, gmo free and ecologically produced foods”. We wanted to let you know that we cannot guarantee that the animals the Fromagerie gets their milk from are fed a 100% GMO-free diet however the fromagerie cares deeply about the welfare of the animals that produce the milk, and they choose farms that have the highest standards of feed and care.
Artisan Cheese is a living organism and just like us, it will suffocate if directly wrapped in plastic which is why we have packaged it in waxed paper inside the vacuum pack. It should be good for a few weeks sealed and then, when you open the sealed bag, the cheese is best eaten by 2 weeks. Savoured, not saved!
