The Food Network Is Featuring 2 Montreal Chefs On A New Show Dedicated To Loving Cheese

Food Network Canada's new show, Cheese: A Love Story, explores the art of one of Canada's most beloved dairy products: cheese. And there's going to be a whole episode dedicated to Quebec, featuring two Montreal chefs/owners of beloved local restaurants. 

The show is hosted by Afrim Pristine, who Food Network calls "the world's youngest Maître Fromager (Cheese Master)." Throughout the series, Pristine will showcase the cheese profile of cities and countries around the world, as he meets up with "culinary pioneers" of the cheese biz.

Quebec's episode is the fourth in the first season. Pristine tastes modern cheesy classics in Montreal (including poutine) and stops at two generations-old fromageries outside the city before travelling to Quebec City and Charlevoix. 

You can expect to see him cross paths with Chuck Hughes of Le Bremner and Michele Forgione of Chez Tousignant. Montrealers know that these guys know their cheese!  

Cheese-lovers everywhere can stream Cheese: A Love Story on the Global TV app with a subscription or through STACKTV on Amazon Prime. It premieres on June 9 at 8 p.m.
