Is there any way to make the rich, creamy Fromager d'Affinois any better? Oh, mais oui, just add black truffles! The supple body of these cheese is the perfect foil to carry over the earthy, garlicky, mushroom flavor and aroma of black truffles. Fromager d'Affinois with Truffles is perfect to start a special dinner, spread on baguettes, or to seductively melt over a fillet for a truffle finish touch. This luscious, Brie-like cheese comes from the Pilat Regional Park in France's Rhone-Alpes. Created by Fromagerie Guilloteau, Fromager d'Affinois ("fro-mah-ZHAY dah-fee-NWAH") is unique in the world of double cremes in that even as it progresses in age it still maintains a firm paste in the center. Unlike brie, however, this double-cream soft cheese is made using a special production process called "ultrafiltration." Ultrafiltration breaks down the fat molecules and removes water from the pasteurized cow’s milk. This concentrates all of the other components allowing for a rapid acceleration of the cheesemaking process, a more luscious texture and a higher protein and calcium content. Beneath the light, fuzzy rind is a gooey ring that becomes almost liquid at room temperature. Progressing further into the cheese, you find a smooth, rich cheese with the lovey taste of fresh butter and earthy mushrooms. Fromager d'Affinois is rich and creamy with a relatively high fat content of 60% that positions it about halfway between traditional brie (about 45%) and triple-creams like Saint André (about 75%). Fromager d'Affinois is a must-try for fans of Saint Andre, Boursaut, or Brie de Meaux. Enjoy this cheese with crisp white wines or champagne, along with apples, grapes, and walnuts.
