A documentary about the only monk in America who still uses the original recipe of the famous cheese made by the Trappist monks in Oka. Heir to a long tradition, Brother Albéric carefully guards the secrets of the process that gives the cheese its unique flavour. Day after day, the cheese-maker patiently repeats the steps involved in this centuries-old craft. In tune with this slow daily pace, the film delves deeply into monastic life at an abbey in Manitoba.

Extrait de la sélection : Showcase Francophonie

This short documentary tells the story of a cheese – the famous Oka - and of the monks who make it. The Trappists in Oka, Quebec, began making the cheese around 1890, when a Trappist monk from France taught them the recipe, which dates back to the 11th century. Today, Brother Albéric continues to make the cheese at an abbey in Manitoba according to traditional methods and a secret recipe written in a mysterious notebook.
