Xmas Update

Updated December 19, 2019

Christmas specialties are starting to show up on the shelves at les amis du FROMAGE. Drop by and check out some the recent finds, including some specialty British cheeses, imported chocolates and Scottish shortbread. We’re also stocked up on hand crafted cheese boards from Strathcona, the Fraser Valley and Cape Breton.

Tourtiere

Our final batch of Tourtiere for the upcoming holiday season is now ready for sale. Our Tourtière is made from an old family recipe that our family has enjoyed for over 50 years. For us, it wouldn’t be Christmas Eve without it. We make it in a larger batch now, but we still use the same cooking techniques. The pork is hand-cut, not ground. It’s a slow process, but that’s why we believe our Tourtière is the best. We hope you enjoy it, too.

Tourtiere is now ready for sale, and selling quickly. Stock is limited.

All Tourtiere is SOLD OUT

Port Soaked Stilton

Our famous Port soaked stilton is ready for sale at both stores.Soaked in Taylor Fladgate late bottle vintage port for six weeks, this Christmas favourite is a wonderful way to round out any holiday meal.

Stock is starting to run low. Down to one wheel at our East Van store, and less that two wheels at our Kitsilano store.
