    Quite easily, the good folk at Fromagerie Guilloteau would be considered pioneers in forging new ways of making cheese. Unlike the traditional ‘curds and whey’ approach of cheesemaking, these guys use ultrafiltration to remove much of the liquid to leave a solid that is rich in nutrients and high in fat. The result of this process means a cheese that is super creamy, rich and brilliant! Their story started in 1981 when cheese lover Jean-Claude Guilloteau created Pave Dauphinois in his small workshop. Later, changing its name to Pave d’Affinois, the small cube shaped cheese found wide success in US setting up the business for future success.

    Taste

    The blue veins in this cheese give the usual tang and bite as you’d expect from the mould, but combine that with the velvety and luscious texture of your typical d’Affinois, then you are in heaven! Due to the creaminess, this cheese is essentially a rich blue brie that has a sweet-blue aftertaste. Everything about this cheese wants you to keep on going. And let’s not forget, it is nutrient rich… Health kick starter?

    D’affinois blue

    We served the d’affinois blue cheese with walnut bread and frisée for the cheese course at my 70th birthday dinner (which we finally had 4 months after the birthday because of lockdown with COVID ) that we shared with our 20 of our good friends. It was delicious and we still had plenty left to eat at home after the event.

    Fromager d'Affinois Bleu wheel 2kg

    Is this the best cheese ever? Very possibly. I took a quarter of the wheel up to friends at the beach on Saturday and the whole thing was demolished between lunch and dinner by six people. Just an excellent cheese. Also incredible customer service from Artisan's Bend. Thank you so much.

    Creamy and tasty

    The texture of this cheese is very creamy and the flavour is slightly subtle but very tasty. It's lovely. We cut the wheel into quarters and froze three of them for later. Thank you.

    The best of soft "bleu" cheeses

    The bleu flavour is enhanced by the creaminess of the fromage. Combined it achieves the best of both worlds.
