Cheese so good that it staved off poverty. Fading funds threatened to close Quebec’s Oka Abbey in 1893. The Trappist order in France sends a superhero of sorts: Brother Alphonse Juin comes to Canada with, yes, a cheese recipe to save the day! He tweaks an old French fromage into a new wonder, Oka.
This cheese champion touts a creamy, nutty flavour with a subtle taste of butter. The rest is history!
