Fromager d'Affinois Blue

I’m very fortunate that the diet I’m on (ketosis) allows me to eat cheese, so rather than eating plain cheddar I’ve been sampling lots of different styles of cheeses.. the most recent being the Fromager d'Affinois Blue.

I purchased it from Coles, where it’s approximately $78 per kilogram. The rind is quite sticky, and overall the cheese was quite pungent.. which originally led me to thinking it had over-ripened, but it’s extremely decadent. 

Super creamy, almost like a triple cream Brie, the blue is very grassy and smells like wet hay.. it tastes fantastic and is a must try.
