How can we tell when to use adjective before the noun or after?


This is an odd one. In England fromage frais is called 'fromage frais', and refers to a particular kind of soft cheese which still contains fermenting agents. Fromage blanc is soft cheese in which the fermentation has stopped. This could mean , have you got any fresh, ie new, cheese? I assume fromage frais has the same particular meaning in France.
