- Brillat Savarin Affine
Brillat Savarin Affine
Named after the famous Gourmand, this cheese is light textured but very rich in flavour due to the addition of cream.
Brillat Savarin was created due to the demand of several cheesemongers, by the producer of the now out-of-production 'Excelsior'. It was the first cheese to be enriched with fat, being invented at the end of the 19th century and was created as a cheese that could feature at grand gastronomic meals.
The name of the cheese is attributed to Henri Androuet in the 1930s in homage of the celebrated French gastronome Brillat-Savarin.
