Xavier David founded Fromi in Kehl, Germany, in 1969. In fact, the town is just across the border from Strasbourg in French Alsace.
Unsurprisingly, the company chose to specialist in curating French artisanal cheeses. Working closely with a number of small dairies, they launched the d’Argental range in 1985.

A velvety white mould

Unlike Vacherousse and Brebirousse, Crémeux d’Argental has a white mould rind. Hence, its aroma and flavour profiles are a bit more subtle.
Furthermore, it has a silky and buttery mouthfeel and its pâte is savoury with a hint of fresh grass. Its white mould rind is edible and has a mild mushroom quality.

How to serve Crémeux d'Argental

Enjoy this spectacular oozer at room temperature with kalamata olives, hot salami and a glass of Champagne. Moreover, when ripe, it can be easily spread across a warm crunchy baguette for a decadent snack!
