Applewood smoked cheese

Was at Kensington couple days ago and picked up some of the cheese. I didn't get a lot cause I didn't know if my SO would like it. As it turns out, I should have picked up a couple pounds for all the dishes he says he could have made with it. I wanna keep him honest and pick more up but it's hard for me to get downtown. I'm up in Thornhill. Any cheese shops that would have it in the 905?

  1. Check Olympic Cheese Outlet on Woodbine (between Shields and 14th Avenue) - this is the Markham sister store to Olympic in the St Lawrence Market - much smaller, but a great selection and helpful staff; we've bought Applewood Smoked Cheddar there on many occasions.... if you're not sure if it's what you're looking for/the same as what you got in Kensington, just ask for a sample to confirm. (Note: I believe they are closed Sundays and Mondays.)

    Alternately, if you can't get there, at least some Longo's do carry Applewood Smoked Cheddar as well...

    Hope this helps, let us know what the SO does with it.

    1. This is my new favourite, I could eat it by the pound! :-) We made burgers the other night and topped them with applewood smoked cheddar, it was incredible!

      1. Not sure which brand you had, but I've been buying it at various chain groceries for years... so just take a look around at your usual shops.
