Pied-de-vent is a semi-soft, washed rind blue cheese made from 100% raw whole milk of Canadienne cows from the Îles-de-la-Madeleine region. Its name comes from French expression "un pied-de-vent" (a wind foot), which means sun’s rays peering through the clouds.

It is a mild flavoured cheese with a rich, smooth and creamy texture and a grayish rind. This cream coloured cheese bursts with flavour of hazelnut and mushroom complemented by a rich aroma. An excellent cooking cheese, it can also be served on a cheese tasting platter.

This is an award-winning cheese having been a finalist at the 2014 Sélection CASEUS competition and 2014 Canadian Cheese Awards.
