Fou du Roy is a semi-soft, washed rind cheese made with organic cow's milk and aged for more than 60 days. During the ripening process, its pinkish-orange rind is smeared with grayish-white penicillium. The interior of the cheese is soft, supple, melt-in-your-mouth complemented by a wonderful bouquet of butter, peanuts and hay. It tastes delicious with Quebec microbrewery beer.

This is an award-winning cheese having been a finalist at the 2006 Canadian Cheese Grand Prix, in the farm cheese category.
