This luscious, Brie-like cheese comes from the Pilat Regional Park in France's Rhone-Alpes. It is a soft white cheese made from cows milk. Fromager d'Affinois is similar to Brie in production, appearance and flavor. Sometimes compared to Brie, Fromager d'Affinois has a white, flossy rind but the interior paste is much more ivory in color. The texture is soft, smooth and yielding, with a tendency to become runny under the rind and remain quite a bit firmer in the center - thereby creating two textures in one.
Flavors are mild and subdued, with notes of salt and a slight hint of mushrooms.
Sold by the each, with a minimum weight of 5.5 oz.
