A double cream soft-ripened cheese specialty, distinguished by its delicate taste of cream, and incomparable melt-in-mouth texture. The freshness of the garlic and the herbs bring subtle flavors to this silky French gourmet cheese. Its coating of herbs gives it a touch of originality. Fresh herbs inside and on the rind of the cheese: garlic, parsley, chives, and chervil inside, and parsley coating. Luscious, silky, divine.

A real crowd-pleaser. Fromage d'Affinois with Garlic & Herbs ("Ail & Fines Herbes" in French) is like a brie but a double-cream version, but you would think it's a triple cream. This cheese is produced using a special technique which creates a very silky and even texture that just melts in the mouth. The flavor is mild, like cream and white mushrooms.

Made in the Rhone-Alpes region of France, this creamery has pioneered cheesemaking methods to produce exceptional cheeses. This cheese will be a welcome guest on any cheese board, meal, or in recipes. Versatile and delicious, it’s friendly with most pairings. Spread on a soft baguette with some fresh fruit, top with your favorite jam, or serve next to cured meats.

We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces and you can also purchase an entire wheel of approx. 4 pounds.

Ingredients:cow's milk, cream, cheese cultures, garlic (0,5%), fines herbs in varying proportions 1,5% (chive, parsley, chervil), salt, pepper, microbial enzymes.
