Pizy is a bloomy rind cheese made from 100% pasteurized cow's milk by Fromagerie La Suisse Normande in Quebec. Its name comes from the name of a small village in the Swiss canton of Vaud, where one of the cheesemakers, Fabienne Guitel, grew up. Pizy is made in the style of Tomme Vaudoise, a cheese local to Fabienne’s hometown.
This soft farm cheese has a smooth, melt-in-your-mouth creamy white paste that becomes increasingly runny over time. Flavours are mild, milky with notes of salted butter and a hint of bitterness, resulting from prolonged ripening.
Serve Pizy on a cheese platter seasoned with pepper and cumin. It is also a good choice for breakfast or as a side dish. Pair aromatic and mellow white wine or Sparkling rose with Pizy to enhance its flavour.
This is an award-winning cheese having won the Prix de l'École de laiterie award at the 2014 Sélection CASEUS competition.
