Rich, creamery cheese

Introducing Guilloteau La Buche d’Affinois.

Guilloteau La Buche d'Affinois

This triple cream delight from France is one of my absolute favourite cheeses. I love the way the melty centre oozes into soft peaks, even when it’s just been taken out of the refrigerator; the delicate milky burst as the velvet cream envelops your tongue…

In addition to port-soaked muscatels, wafers of prosciutto and super light watercrackers, my ideal cheeseboard at the moment would have to comprise:

  • La Buche d’Affinois;
  • Saint Agur – a double cream blue cheese; and
  • the semihard Tome d’Abondance – from my recent Star Anise visit.

    Nice cheese. My fave has always been St Andre…beautiful especially if you can get the individual ones.

    Mmm…Saint-Andre looks like a heart attack waiting to happen. I love it!
