Shipping Notes

Brillat Savarin is a ‘triple cream’ Brie, meaning during the cheese making process, the ratio of cream to milk was higher then a typical batch of Brie. This results in a creamier, richer and noticeably butter-like taste.

Brillat Savarin is made all year round in Burgundy and Normandy, and aged for one or two weeks. The paste has a mushroomy or moldy flavor to it and can also be quite salty. For these reasons, avoid pairing it with a red wine. Instead, opt for Champagne, a Rosé or a pale ale; something crisp and clean to counterbalance the rich texture of the cheese.

Although this cheese melts incredibly well and would lend itself to a sauce or even an omelet, it is so highly respected as a gourmet cheese, that you would be better off eating it by itself, spread on a bit of crusty bread with some dried fruits, especially dates, or nuts.

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.
