Without cheese, wine would live a lonely existence, shutting itself away in dark, cold cellars. Celebrate cheese's unfettering loyalty with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cheese and more at Upper Canada Cheese Company, located on Jordan Road.
Upper Canada Cheese Company crafts artisanal cheeses from approximately 100 local Guernsey cows, a breed renowned for producing milk that bursts with butterfat, protein, and vitamins. Each day, on-site dairy denizens transform small batches of cow milk into flavourful, golden-hued cheeses that meditates in cellars for weeks. Stuff mouth pockets with a helping of Niagara Gold ($61/kg), a semi-soft cheese whose youthful identity is wrought with nutty overtones and a mellow buttery flavour that later ages into a cheese that is pungent and piquant. The Comfort Cream ($59/kg) entices tongues with a silky, creamy interior and fresh truffle flavour, which is hand-salted, hand-turned, and hand-wrapped.
Brickstone caramelized onion confit ($9.99) and pickled peaches ($8.99) represent an array of anti-lactose options. While at Upper Canada Cheese Company, explore the gourmet store for other unique artisan cheeses, gourmet sauces, and preserves to fill up sparse picnic baskets or weigh down flighty hot air balloons.
