Brie is a soft cow’s milk cheese manufactured in France. Originally, it was made in and named after the French region of Brie, which is common day Seine-et-Marne. Today, Brie is made all over the world with a variety of different recipes; some using different kinds of milk, or the additions of herbs and spices. Although France still considers Brie de Meaux and Brie de Melun to be the only true Brie in production today.

Brie is characterized by it’s creamy off white center, wrapped in a white rind. The rind is moldy but edible, and often thought to be the best part of the cheese.

Brie is good enough to enjoy on its own, but if you want to do something special with it, try an old classic. Take your wheel of Brie and wrap it in a sheet of puff pastry. Bake on a sheet pan until the center of the Brie is melted and the puff pastry is golden brown. Cut into the wheel as you would normally and enjoy.
If you are looking for a wine pairing, Brie is wonderfully complimented by crisp white beverages; Chardonnay, Chablis or Champagne are all excellent choices.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.

* See cheese label for proper storage recommendations
