Good cheese hunting: Day 3, in Eastern Ontario
As we check out of Millisle Bed & Breakfast in Merrickville to head farther east in Ontario cheese country, we realize, to our consternation, that the lock of the trunk on our Ford Focus has jammed shut.
- Barbecued turkey topped with mozzarella and cheddar, and red peppers and onions, makes a terrific sandwich on flat bread at Lock 17 Bistro at Burritts Rapids on the Rideau Canal west of Kemptville.
- A galaxy of cheese on display at St. Albert Cheese Co-Operative in St. Albert, Ontario.
- Zowie! St. Albert cheese curds squeak between the teeth—like good curds should.
- A sure sign we have locked ourselves out of the trunk: No dishes, no utensils for our light supper of Empire 3-year cheddar, bison pate with figs and port and a phenom baguette, all from Mrs. McGarrigle’s in Merrickville.
- Our day concludes in Hawkesbury with a delicious creme brulee cheesecake from Lock 17 Bistro. Still no utensils, still no dishes on account of the jammed trunk. Monday morning, we plan to find a Ford dealership.
