Fromager d’Affinois and Porcini Mushroom Grilled Cheese

Benjamin Vaschetti By Benjamin Vaschetti, Chef

Deliciously creamy with a silky-smooth texture, Pavé d'Affinois has a sweet yet mild flavour. It melts in the mouth to reveal a fresh burst of milky goodness and hints of grassy pastures.

    Place the sandwiches in the pan used for the mushrooms and cook until the cheese is about halfway melted. Then use a spatula to flip the sandwiches over and then put the pan in the oven. Bake until both sides of the sandwiches are crusty, and the cheese is melted, about 8 minutes.
