FROMAGERIE GUILLOTEAU ANNOUNCES NEWEST ADDITION TO CHEESE FAMILY:
FROMAGER D’AFFINOIS CAMPAGNIER
Specialty French Cheese Producer Introduces New Washed-Rind Cheese to US Market in 2015
Fromagerie Guilloteau, one of France’s finest specialty cheese producers, is pleased to introduce the newest member of its family: Fromager d’Affinois Campagnier. Produced using Fromagerie Guilloteau’s revolutionary ultrafiltration process, which retains a higher concentration of nutrients and ensures creamier and richer cheeses, this soft-ripened, cows-milk cheese presents a smooth and velvety texture – similar to a triple-cream – and displays salty, buttery and meaty flavors. Its thin, orange-colored rind comes from washing the rind in an extract from Annatto, an indigenous plant to South America that is used as a natural dye ranging in color from bright yellow to deep orange.
“The newest cheese to our top-selling cheese line, Fromager d’Affinois, reflects our desire to share the “terroir” of France with American consumers,” states Pierre Stéphane Leyrat, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Fromagerie Guilloteau. “The orange-tinted rind is meant to invoke the color of the wheat fields where the Fromagerie Guilloteau cheeses are produced.”
In addition to being the newest product in the Fromager d’Affinois family, the Campagnier is also the perfect Fall cheese. The orange-tinted rind it makes it a festive, season-appropriate addition to a Halloween or Thanksgiving cheese plate, and its deep umami flavor makes it a great cheese to incorporate into cool-season meals. In addition, the Campagnier cheese, which had limited availability in the United States when it was first introduced earlier this year, can now be found at many Whole Foods markets and other specialty cheese retailers nationwide.
While the orange-tinted rind of Fromager d’Affinois Campagnier makes it easy to incorporate a festive flare to a Halloween party appetizer or Thanksgiving cheese and charcuterie plate, the cheese can also be easily incorporated everyday home cooking. The below recipe for Texan-style Beef Wraps with Fromager d’Affinois Campagnier is an easy and nutritious dinner for the entire family.
