Australia's Favourite French Cheesemaker
d'Affinois cheese is not just rich, it’s stinking rich. It’s the champagne-swilling, polo-playing, silver-tongued lothario of the dairy world. Ladies, form an orderly queue…
However, despite its effortless looks, all this smoothness is hard-earned, and all down to the creativity of a certain cheese lover Jean-Claude Guilloteau. It was his invention of a process called ultrafiltration that causes the uniquely luscious texture of the interior of this opulent cheese. The process breaks down the fat molecules and removes the water from the milk, leading to more concentration of the fats and proteins – increasing the richness of flavour and the velvetiness of the texture.
