Fromager d'Affinois

Buttery, sweet cream, with a fresh milky paste.

Quick Overview:

Smooth and pliant; a great introduction to French brie styles!

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: France
Milk Type/Treatment: Pasteurized Cow
Rennet Type: Microbial

The Flavor Experience

The fine velvet rind of Fromager d’Affinois encases a paste so creamy you’d swear it was a triple crème. Rich and satiny, this innovative cheese borrows different elements from our favorite French bloomy-rinds to create this wildly popular wheel. With the disc-shape of a camembert, but the buttery flavor and thick texture of a triple crème, this cheese will fulfill all your soft-cheese needs and desires in a single wedge.

The Story

It may feel like a triple crème, but it’s not. In lieu of adding additional cream during cheesemaking, makers of Fromager d’Affinois utilize a novel technology called ultafiltration. In this effiecint method, the fluffiest fat and protein molecules (those most desirable for cheese) are concentrated in the milk before coagulation, while much of the water is removed. Once cheesemaking is under way, most of the hard work of concentrating the tasty, rich elements, and expelling the water, is already done, allowing cheesemakers to achieve a rich, dense cheese with less milk.

Usage Tips


All that velvet and satin deserves an equally lush accompaniment. Serve Fromager d’Affinois with thick slices of ripe peaches and apricots for the pinnacle of textural luxury. A slightly sweet Riesling, full of the same stone-fruit notes, will be pleased to join your party. Something spicy is nicely cooled by the bright cream of this cheese, so go for some Biellese Napolitona salami, or the spicy, spreadable Calabrain-style n’duja from N’Duja Artisans.

    This soft ripened cheese is so delicious it is always the first to be exhausted on my cheese plates.

    One of the best rich and creamy cheeses I've had for a while - and a very good price for the quality!

    There is only one brand of brie available locally, and while its pretty good, find the rind unpalatable.The fromager d'affinois is YUM, including the rind.
