Only joking. It’s actually French for “cheese square.” This creamy, soft-ripened cheese square could easily be mistaken for Brie, but Trader Joe’s Fromage Pavé includes a step in the cheese-making process that changes things dramatically. The milk goes through a process called ultrafiltration, which removes the whey from the milk before the rest of the process begins. The finished cheese retains more protein, calcium and phosphorus than other soft-ripened cheeses, and it's exquisitely ripe and ready to enjoy after just two weeks of aging.
If you’re a fan of soft-ripened cheese, you'll develop a soft spot for Fromage Pavé. It’s a mild and buttery triple crème cheese, making it an ideal partner to everything from crackers to apple slices to Nuts & Fruits & Honey. Its square-ish shape makes it stand out on a cheese platter, and our price of $4.99 for each seven ounce package makes it a stand-out in the value arena.
