Isigny Sainte-Mère Fromage Frais 40% (500g)
Award-winning Isigny Ste-Mère Fresh Cheeses: simplicity and delicacy.
Isigny’s fromages frais are a tribute to the recipes of long ago. Fresh and authentic, they are made to be enjoyed on all occasions.
The fromages frais are also characteristically thick and rich in milk solids (meaning that there is less water for a given percentage of fat in dry matter). They are particularly silky and luxurious. This taste and texture combination has been rewarded and won medals at the Concours Général Agricole in Paris.
Our fromages frais are made from the finest Normandy milks. These are distinguished by their exceptional richness, high fat content, high levels of protein. Whole milk is first seeded with carefully selected lactic starter cultures before rennet is added to trigger curdling in the milk.
Then there follows a slow maturing phase, during which the curds are left overnight at a predetermined temperature before whey is decanted off in the morning.
Our farmhouse fromage frais is made in cloths, draining slowly and gently, as tradition requires. This draining process preserves all its character and texture. It allows a lightly acidulated taste to develop. Needless to say, every stage is punctuated with quality checks and tests, which ensure that our fromage frais meets all our expectations.
