The Pavé d’Affinois brand takes its name from the cube shape which characterizes our cheese, plus the geographic origin of the first Pavé, or block. Created in the Dauphiné region, giving it the name “Dauphinois”, the brand quickly became Pavé d’Affinois, in recognition of the delicate ripening stage (or “affinage” in French), needed to produce a quality soft cheese.
This small square cheese is made by Fromagerie Guilloteau near Pe- lussin, France. Similar to the Brique d’Affinois, it has a slightly mixed- white mould rind which develops to a mild silky texture as it ripens.
