France’s Finest Specialty Cheese Producer Serves Up Something for Everyone,
From Classic Double-crème to Pepper, Garlic & Herbs, and Blue Flavors
Fromagerie Guilloteau(www.fromagerdaffinois.com), one of France’s finest specialty cheese producers, is beloved amongst turophiles worldwide for their unique cheesemaking process that produces ultra-creamy and delicious cheeses. A top-seller worldwide, the Fromager d’Affinois brand has expanded to include a number of flavors beyond the popular Fromager d’Affinois plain flavor. **
“We debuted the original Fromager d’Affinois in 1995, and American consumers fell in love with this cheese, which is a double cream that tastes like a triple cream,” states Pierre Stéphane Leyrat, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Fromagerie Guilloteau. “It was only natural that we introduce additional flavors to this line of cheeses, which are all produced using ultrafiltration, an ingenious process which retains a higher concentration of nutrients and ensures creamier and richer cheeses.”
Fromagerie Guilloteau produces a selection of different cheeses to satisfy every palate. Fromager d’Affinois is a smooth double cream cheese that expresses the cheesemaker’s expertise and delicacy in the cheese maturing process. The high fat-content of this cheese positions it halfway between a traditional Brie and a triple-cream cheese. Its bloomy white rind surrounds a seductively soft interior and its mild & buttery flavor features a hint of sweetness. It is the perfect addition to any cheese plate, and can also be incorporated into many traditional recipes in order to elevate the flavor.
In addition to the original Fromager d’Affinois, this cheese also comes in flavors of Pepper, Garlic & Mixed Herbs, and Blue.
The Fromager d’Affinois Pepper combines the bite of peppercorns (black, green, white, pink and Jamaican) with the smoothness of a double-cream cheese. The Fromager d’Affinois Garlic & Herbs pairs the zip of fresh garlic with mixed herbs (parsley, chives and chervil).
The Fromager d’Affinois Bleu combines the tang of blue cheese with the smoothness of the Fromager d’Affinois Plain. Its mild edible rind surrounds a delicious yellow paste that is speckled with beautiful blue veins. Its luscious velvety texture is similar to buttercream icing — soft and easily spreadable. It is the ideal “starter” cheese for those looking to explore the world of blue cheeses.
Fromagerie Guilloteau recently introduced a new logo for the brand as well. Some of the new components introduced to the logo include: a round line (characteristics of the round and soft taste of the products); a simple, natural, slate color; a smile reminiscent of a friendly brand; and a pointed shape similar to the shape of a piece of cheese.
About Fromagerie Guilloteau
Fromagerie Guilloteau is a family-owned business with two production sites located in the southeast part of France, near the Alps. Fromagerie Guilloteau was created in 1981 with the production of the first Pavé d’Affinois cheese, using ultra-filtration methods. This process retains all the nutrients of the milk in the cheese, which gives a unique taste and texture to the cheese.
Fromagerie Guilloteau works with over 100 local milk producers, most with an average herd of around 50 cows. Fromagerie Guilloteau collects nearly 25 million liters of milk per year from Montbéliardes and Prim’Holsteins Montbéliardes breeds, found mostly in mountainous regions of France. Both of these breeds are known to produce high-quality milk, particularly rich in proteins, which makes for the smooth, creamy, textured cheese Fromagerie Guilloteau has become known for.
Fromagerie Guilloteau best sellers are Fromager d’Affinois Plain, Fromager d’Affinois Garlic and Herbs, Fromager d’Affinois Pepper, Fromager d’Affinois Truffle, Fromager d’Affinois Blue, Saint Angel, Florette, and Campagnier.
You can find these cheeses in many stores throughout the United States, from Whole Foods to specialty cheese shops.
