Cheese has been made in Canada since Samuel de Champlain brought dairy cows from Normandy in 1608. The cows used for Canada’s modern cheeses are said to be descendants of these great French dairy cows. The same breed that is responsible for so many of our favorite French cheeses is also behind many of our favorite Canadian offerings. With such a great foundation for cheesemaking, it’s no wonder that Canada has produced some of the finest cheeses around the world! From soft unripened cheeses in the French method to hardy Cheddars inspired by the English, Canada has been able to make truly wonderful cheeses that combine traditional techniques with new flavors! But wait there's more, Canada is also responsible for the creation of some truly creative cheesy recipes.
