Le Tournevent is a fresh, soft, unripened, pasteurized goat-milk cheese produced by Fromagerie Tournevent operated by Damafro located in Saint-Damase in the Montérégie region of Quebec.
Le Tournevent has a gentle, sweet smell of goat's milk, a smooth texture and a mild tart flavour characteristic of goat's milk cheese.
Le Tournevent is a wonderful chèvre frais with only 20% fat content. It is ideal to add to salads as it is crumbly when cold. If you prefer a creamy, spreadable, goat cheese then let it air at room temperature for a smooth texture. Le Tournevent is also available as an ash-covered goat cheese. Le Tournevent is a versatile cheese, you can crumble it on salads, steamed veggies or pizzas or you can simply spread it on bread or bagels or mix it into omelets, quiches or soufflés.
Le Tournevent pairs well with a Pino Grigio or a Pouilly Fumé.
Fromagerie Tournevent specializes in goat milk products. They also produce Feta cheese, Les Médaillons, Le Biquet and the award winning Chèvre Noir which is an excellent aged goat-milk cheddar.
