Montreal Is Hosting A Free Cheese Festival This Winter

Montreal Is Hosting A Free Cheese Festival This Winter

Our Belle Province is often nicknamed "cheese heaven" because of the abundance of cheese production found in our region. Fun dinner party fact: over three-quarters of all of Canada's cheeses are produced in Quebec. That's a lot of fromage. 

In addition to P'tit Quebec's standard brick cheddar cheese, some of the most highly prized artisan and fine cheese in Canada are found in Quebec. You may have already heard of "Fromages d'ici," meaning cheese from here — it's a Quebec-based association that works to promote local cheese artisans and dairy producers.  You may have seen those little "D'ICI" stickers on your cheese items at the grocery stores, too.
