eat :: Everything Cheese

Edmonton is getting really cheesy (and we mean that in the best way). Craving that goat morbier you sampled in Paris? No need to jet back to France; just drive to Everything Cheese. This local fromagerie features over 80 cheeses bringing you a taste of Spain, Italy, Holland, or even Canada. And, these cheeses are nothing like the ones you’ll find in the grocery store; these cheeses will tantalize your taste buds.

Everything Cheese sells only handmade artisan cheese contributing to unbelievable tastes and textures. So many factors impact the taste of cheese – the region, the ingredients, the techniques and the animals on the farmstead (even the quality of the grass the animals munch on).

Don’t know the difference between Roquefort and Gorgonzola? Do not fear. Beyond knowing great cheese, this shop is passionate about presenting the delicious world of cheese to you. The owners will introduce you to stinky, nutty, firm, aged and fresh cheeses. Plus, they’ve added thoughtful (and helpful!) labels to all the cheeses describing the flavors and suggested pairings. All of your purchases are dutifully noted in your customer profile so you’ll never have to remember the name of that cheese you purchased six months ago.

Everything Cheese is a foodie haven with fresh baked bread from Bonjour Bakery; chutneys and spreads; gourmet crackers; and delicious sides like Mojo Jojo Pickles.

Cheeses to try:

  • Montasio al Marzemino: hails from north east Italy and is infused with wine from the region.
  • Brebichon: A soft artisanal pasteurized sheep-milk cheese. The light wheat coloured rind is washed with apple cider.
  • Avonlea Cheddar: Using cheese-making techniques from British Isles, this cheese is clothbound. The PEI soil gives an infusion of potato tasting notes.

Go ahead, get cheesy!
