Tuesday, August 15th, 2023

Looking to bring some heat to the charcuterie board? Well, Marin French Cheese Co. has just the offering to spice things up. In fact, the supplier’s Petite Jalapeño was recently awarded first place for the Soft-Ripened with Flavor Added – all milks category at the 2023 American Cheese Society (ACS) Competition.

Bonnie Kaufman, Associate Brand Manager, Marin French Cheese Co.Receiving first place from the ACS for one of our Petite Classics emphasizes the depth and innovation of our creamery,” Bonnie Kaufman, Associate Brand Manager, began telling me. “The first place recognition is a testament to Marin French Cheese Co.’s long-time cheesemaking heritage, the premium quality of our cheeses, and dedication from our incredible cheesemakers.”

As Bonnie explained, Petite Jalapeño is bursting with bold and spicy flavors of pickled jalapeño—perfectly balanced by a smooth and creamy brie base. It pairs perfectly with cranberries, strawberries, cherry tomatoes, radishes, rosé, albariño, margaritas, and palomas. I’ll take one of each, please.

“Petite Jalapeño is a perfect balance of old world techniques paired with innovative location-inspired ingredients for the modern palate,” she noted. “Through our ‘French tradition meets California vision,’ we’ve created a unique format (full size, small wheel) that is special to our creamery and is what the modern American consumers are looking for. Our Jalapeño Brie stands out from other elevated pepper cheeses as our brie features unique flavor components as a result of our cheesemaking heritage, enhancing the pepper notes.

Marin French’s collection of 4 oz Petite flavored cheeses includes Breakfast, Crème, Camembert, Mustard, Jalapeño, Truffle, Suprême, and Ash. They are balanced and enhanced with premium ingredients to inspire moments of authentic pleasure.

A huge congratulations goes out to the Marin French team for this impressive win. We look forward to seeing all of the ways this company continues to make its mark on the specialty cheese industry.
