St-Fidèle Swiss is a firm, interior-ripened, rindless, ivory-coloured, lactose-free cheese with a delicious nutty taste. It is ivory in colour with an almondy taste developed by age and characteristic small "eyes" openings distributed throughout the paste. The cheese is made from 100% Canadian cow's milk sourced from dairy farms in the Charlevoix region.
There are other varieties available in St-Fidèle Swiss such as:
- Aged St-Fidèle Swiss: aged for six months
- Light St-Fidèle Swiss: firm, ripened cheese with only 17% fat
- Port Macerated St-Fidèle Swiss: St-Fidèle Swiss macerated in Port from Baie-St-Paul microbrewery. It has an ivory coloured paste with a purple exterior and a pleasant taste of sweet, red wine.
St-Fidèle Swiss is a great choice for breakfast, snacks, pasta and fondues. Serve it with medium-bodied wines or fruity, floral dry wines to enhance the flavour of the cheese.
