It's always saddening when something bad happens to cheese, but we gouda move on with our lives.

Pretty much every poutine stand and fry truck around Ottawa uses the curds from St. Albert's. They are (were) hands down the best cheese factory anywhere near here.

Hopefully they can be up and running again soon.

We got people that drive 100 miles that come here for lunch and grab their cheese and go back.

A Canadian gave me some cheddar from a place in eastern Ontario that doesn't do mail order, you have to drive hours from anywhere to buy it in person. I wonder if it was this place.

I have had St. Albert's Cheese. It's a shame to lose a cheese factory. There used to be one in every small village or town back in the days before the railroad and highway networks concentrated the industry into the hands of giant corporations.

When I was a kid, small country stores would have a cheese wheel with a damp cheesecloth over it, from which they would cut cheddar cheese to order. The cheese was old and crumbly and had ten times the flavour of anything you pull out of a refrigerator. Mind you, my taste buds are not what they were as a child, but even allowing for that, this was good artisanal cheese that was never touched by plastic wrap.

Curse your Velveeta cheeze-fud! As the song says, ain't nothin' like the real thang, babee!

That's about $1,500,000 worth anywhere else. Dairy is incredibly expensive in Canada due to strict regulations on prices.

$3 million in cheese? That much could probably fit in a semi trailer at today's prices.

The eating of cheese is going to be the demise of me. I can't seem to do without it.

It's so underground the people who eat it have never heard of it.

St. Albert's was the last independent of the old cheese factories in Eastern Canada.  There are new small cheese makers in Quebec and probably in Ontario - they tend to offer interesting, exotic cheeses.

But St. Albert''s  had had the best 'Extra Old' cheddar I've ever tasted; it had a little extra bite that no other cheddar has and no soapiness at all - just a superb cheddar.  I haven't had some in a few years because I don't live in Montreal any more.  I hope they can rebuild..
 
2013-02-03 07:15:55 PM
This factory is actually run by my great uncle. most of the entire town is employed by the factory and Related businesses.  Every chip truck and restaurant in the area that uses real cheese gets it from them. It's a sad day for Ottawa. They'll rebuild, but it'll take a while.

Balderson's is pretty good too, but yea, the headline is accurate.  At least it'll help the wife's diet plans.

Pretty basic cheese, but very high quality.  Every year I made the pilgrimage to exit 53 on the 417 to buy a bunch.
