Eskurido: 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.

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

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.

redundantman: 3 greenlit Canada stories in a row?  What, there's nothing happening in `Murica?

It'd just be another stupid gun thread anyway. Enjoy the moment.

chefbret: 3 Canada posts in a row? Mods must be drinking (Labatt's)

I figure it's because Americans are too busy and/or inebriated to submit anything ATM.

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!
