Beemster Vlaskaas in Montreal?

Fritzy Dec 19, 2010 03:01 AM

Has anyone seen any Beemster Vlaskaas in Montreal, the dutch Gouda-like cheese that is rather softer and sweeter than traditional Gouda? Looking for some in the downtown core or points West. Any help appreciated.

    You can buy Beemster at Fromagerie Atwater, but they ususally have the extra-aged (XO) and the light (I will refrain from comments about light cheeses...). I would suggest calling and asking if they have other types.

      Hello Fritzy! Hope this finds you well - indeed it is at the atwater market - although I am unsure if this comes too late - or try fromagerie du marche - L MacIntyre

        Thank you Chery and Leigh M.! I will jot it down and pick up some at Atwater on my next trip. It really is a delicious and rather unusual cheese worth tracking down. I had my first chance encounter with this Dutch cheese inCape Breton of all places.
