Feuille d’automne Cheese is sold in small rounds, about 180g each.
It is a soft, washed-rind cheese with a slightly-brown crust, with small traces of white mould on it, and a slightly nutty taste.
The rounds are made from unpasteurized whole cow’s milk, and ripened for 60 days. The rounds are washed every 2 or 3 days during ripening.
It is made by the Fromagerie Chaput pour les Dépendances du Manoir in Montérégie, Québec.
Feuille d’automne Cheese was subject to a recall issued on 23 June 2003 by the Ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l’Alimentation of Quebec owing to the prescence of E. Coli and staphiloccocus aureus.
Feuille d’automne Cheese means “autumn leaf” cheese.
