Hi. We're Fromage!
To put it basically, cheese is the best thing in the world. And when you visit Fromage Fine Cheeses and Gourmet Food on Broadway in Orangeville, you will find that owner Christine Patton has cheese that literally comes from all over the world!
While Christine carries many different product lines as part of her Gourmet Food sections, including Gluten Free, Organic and Local; all as healthy and as natural as this food-savvy owner can find, we are going to focus on……..”CHEESE”!
(I mentioned I love cheese right?)
When you approach the gorgeous cheese counter, the variety is stunning. You can see where each cheese comes from, what type it is, and what sort of flavours you can anticipate. And if you just aren’t sure which one to get, “Just ask us, we are happy to give you a taste” says Christine. “When our customers leave, they leave with cheese they know they are going to enjoy.”
Now some of you may be wondering, “I’m lactose intolerant, would this shop have anything for me?” Well…YES, YES, YES!
Christine herself is lactose intolerant, and was drawn into the cheese industry in order to satisfy her love of cheese, and to help keep her calcium levels strong.
Having graduated courses in both food security and agriculture, she decided to open a cheese store in Orangeville, while attending George Brown College to learn the time-honoured European traditions of professional fromagers. So needless to say, this lady knows her cheese!
A Readers Choice Award Winner!
We've been a favourite to residents of Orangeville and the surrounding areas for many years. We take pride is delivering an exceptional experience to hundreds of customers who come through our doors daily.
There are non-cow cheeses including goat’s milk, sheep’s milk, and buffalo’s milk cheeses which can be consumed by those intolerant to cow’s milk. Lactose intolerant and vegan consumers can also choose from different flavours of non-cow cheeses. “It’s really nice, because I can bring in cheese that is not available in your typical grocery store”, explains Christine.
“It’s been a real pleasure to see customers come in and find products that make them excited” she says, “it’s amazing how many people had been travelling to Toronto to get their cheeses.”
There are so many varieties, tastes, and textures to choose from, you might feel a bit overwhelmed. Not to worry, from the moment you walk in to this quaint shop, and are greeted by Christine and her staff, you will find it a place difficult to leave.
Options are endless when it comes to Christine’s shop. They carry everything from Blue to Cheddar, Washed Rind, Bloomy Rind, and Firm. Also included are many different kinds of soft cheeses, and can be paired with delicious smoked meats, olives, tapanades, breads, and sauces that will make up the perfect charcuterie board for one, two, or a party.
Christine wants her customers to know, “Fine cheese does not have to be extravagant, or even very high priced.” Christine and her team will help you based on budget and needs. And for the record, you don’t have to take a huge piece of cheese, Fromage will cut it as small or as large as you like, and sometimes with fine foods, less is more!
So I say “Bring them cheese!” Or better yet go to Fromage, it’s well worth the visit!
