Winding Road Artisan Cheese

If you would have asked Ian Treuer and Aurelio Fernandes 10 years ago that they would own and operate an Artisan Cheese Business they would have laughed.  Now, after almost one year in production, Winding Road Artisan Cheese has sliced out their section in the Alberta cheese scene.

Ian and Aurelio met in 2014, while working on a project to develop cheese making kits for home cheese makers using Cardoon in place of traditional Rennet.  They were in the process of creating the recipes/formulas for these kits when they had the opportunity to take over an existing cheese making facility near Smoky Lake, Alberta in September 2015.  Aurelio and Ian put the cheese kit idea on hold and in mid February 2016 they took possession!

Winding Road Artisan Cheese started production in the second week of March 2016, starting with yogurt, their soft spreadable cheese (Fromage Blanc), and their firm cheeses (Josef and German Butter Cheese).  They now supply to restaurants in Edmonton (Sabor, &27, Hardware Grill) and Calgary. They are in retail locations in Edmonton – Bonjour Bakery, Blush Lane Organic Market, The Organic Box, SPUD and the Downtown City Market in City Hall.  They are in all 3 Community Natural Foods in Calgary as well as Peasant Cheese.

Winding Road Artisan Cheese uses Certified Organic Milk from Vital Green Dairy.  It is grass fed non-homogenized whole milk and truly is the best milk in Alberta for making cheese.  They only use Cardoon, a member of the thistle family used in Portuguese cheese making for centuries, to set the curd.  This is more sustainable as cardoon is considered to be a weed and grows wild in Portugal where theirs is harvested.  Currently they are the only cheese maker in Canada who uses this blend of Cardoon in cheese making.

All their cheeses are handmade, they have only one piece of automation in the entire facility. Everything else is done by hand, including packaging, this allows Head Cheese Maker, Ian, and Assistant Cheese Maker, Alex, to really get the feel for the cheese and make sure they produce quality cheese!

Chilean Corner

About 10 years ago, their family decided to move from Chile to Canada. Since they had their own bakery in Chile, the idea of selling Chilean food and establishing a little business here in Canada was always in their mind.

It all started with a humble little farmer’s market booth. The set up was simple and the menu featured mostly Chilean desserts. A year went by and they decided to add more typical food from Chile to their menu, like empanadas and pastel de choclo. That opened up new opportunities. They realized that customers knew more about their empanadas than of their desserts, and that’s when they decided to make the empanadas the main feature on their menu.

Four years have passed and their little booth has grown immensely! Chilean Corner now sells at markets across Edmonton, Sherwood Park and St. Albert, and they’re excited to be a part of City Market! Although their business has expanded, their work ethic has not changed. They are known by their customers as being a hard-working and happy family that is always trying their best to share a little taste of their Chilean culture.
