This Brie-like cheese, from the Rhone-Alpes and created by Fromagerie Guilloteau, is a soft, delicious double crème. Fromager d’Affinois differs from traditional Brie in that the cow’s milk undergoes a process called ultrafiltration, which removes water from the pasteurized milk and helps to concentrate the flavor even further. While other Brie cheeses take up to eight weeks to mature, the process of creating Fromager d’Affinois can be completed in two weeks. This rich cheese has a fat content of 60%.
A white, soft rind surrounds the cheese, while the interior is almost cream-like, becoming gooey and wonderful as the cheese comes to room temperature. Reminiscent of freshly churned butter with earthy undertones, this Brie-like cheese will quickly become your next favorite.
Application: Perfect with fresh fruits, a toasted baguette or surrounded by crispy puff pastry, a cocktail party classic!
Pairing: Try the Fromager d’ Affinois with white wines like Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc, or an Abbey Ale like Chimay Triple (White).
