Cendré des Prés is a Morbier-style bloomy rind cheese made from 100% pasteurized cow's milk by Fromagerie Domaine Féodal in Quebec. Underneath its bloomy rind, which is dotted with patches when aged, lies an ivory paste that is divided by a layer of edible maple wood ash. Flavours offered are of butter, cream, mushroom with hints of white grapefruit complemented by aromas of mushroom, wood, acidic cream bread crust and floral tones.
Cendré des Prés was Fromagerie Domaine Féodal’s first cheese. It has since then won many awards including finalist at the 2014 Sélection CASEUS competition, gold at the 2008 British Empire Cheese Show and Bronze at the 2011 American Cheese Society competition.
