We love stopping by Dufferin Grove's La Fromagerie and treating ourselves to some amazingly fresh, flavourful cheeses that one can't find at the grocery store. With the holidays fast approaching, we're thinking ahead to family meals and all the cheesy appetizers we'll make!
Ten years ago Robert Burns (the visual artist, not the Scottish poet) turned his creative power to a completely different endeavor: a storefront dedicated to his hand-picked choices of some of the finest and creamiest artisanal cheeses from France and Québec, as well as top picks from other cheese-bearing nations.
Some favourites include the chevres from France, like Clochette (which is about $19), and the Applewood Smoked Cheddar from England, which is great value – a large triangle piece cost about $7.
Not stopping there, Robert has brought in treats, fine pastries (delicious and flaky almond croissants!), honeys, rare condiments, olives, meats, breads, salts, vinegars, oils and spices to give his loyal clientele – including the likes of Sarah Polley and Bruce MacDonald – a curated 'best-of' store. Burns seeks to offer the perfect array of delicacies for the most private and exclusive of house parties and events. If it’s time to enjoy the finest gourmet products, it’s time to visit Robert’s La Fromagerie.
