Brie is a scrumptious, creamy, soft cheese made from cow’s milk and named after the region in France where it originated.
Best served at room temperature, Brie is popular in sandwiches, salads, and served with bread or crackers. It can also be melted through pasta, baked or even deep fried. As a special occasion cheese for some and an everyday staple for others, Brie is hugely popular across the UK.
Brie Isn’t Just From France
What many people don’t know however is that Brie is made all over the world – the French region where it originated simply refers to the recipe. For many years now small producers around Britain have been making high quality, delicious continental cheeses such as Brie and Camembert that can easily rival the taste and quality of traditional French cheeses.
Cornish Brie is fast making a name for itself due to its creamy, mild taste and smooth texture. Made with Cornish milk, this award-winning cheese is matured to perfection and features the gooey middle that Brie lovers adore. For those who like a bolder taste, there are many different flavours to choose from.
There are also a number of producers in different locations worth trying, including Somerset, the Channel Islands, and Wales. If you’re a Brie fan, make sure to try out Cornish Brie next time you shop. We’ve no doubt it will be replacing its French counterpart in your kitchen from now on.
