The GOODS from Les Amis Du Fromage
Vancouver, BC | We did it! We’ve made a batch of Tourtiere for the upcoming holiday season. Alice Spurrell’s Tourtière is made from an old family recipe. Alice has made this traditional Quebec specialty meat pie to enjoy with her family each and every year for over 50 years. We make it in a larger batch that Alice did, but we still use the same cooking techniques Alice would use at home. The meat 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. Stock is limited. 10″ / $38.00 each.

About Les Amis du Fromage
les amis du FROMAGE is Vancouver’s busiest and best cheese shop. Not only have the readers of The Georgia Straight and the Westender voted les amis Vancouver’s Best Cheese Shop, les amis du FROMAGE has also been a recipient of Vancouver Magazine’s restaurant award for Top Food Supplier to Vancouver’s finest restaurants.
The mother and daughter team of Alice & Allison Spurrell stock the larders of the city’s finest restaurants and your fridge alike. They fill their shelves with hundreds of cheeses including local, unpasteurized (Lait Cru) French, English, Italian, Spanish, Swiss and other specialties from around the world. The store regularly stocks between 400-500 cheeses for sale to both trade and consumers. Of those cheeses, at least 150 are from Canada, with a focus on British Columbia and Quebec.
In addition to cheese, we also import many other specialty foods including top quality blended and single varietal extra virgin olive oils, specialty vinegars, cheese accompaniments, crackers and biscuits, local and imported charcuterie and cheese equipment including girolles, cheese knives, cheese boards, raclette machines and fondue pots.
The East Vancouver store is home to our production kitchen where our chefs prepare our popular line of frozen ready to heat soups and entrees. Everything is made from scratch, and in small batches. WE use quality local ingredients like Rossdown Farms Poultry and Pemberton Meadows beef. These meals can be purchased at all les amis du FROMAGE stores.
We look forward to serving you.
