4 Ways to Warm up with Brie
Brie is one of the most popular cheeses in France, it’s even been hailed as the Queen of Cheeses. An apt nickname, as it was often paid to French royalty as a tribute several hundred years ago. Originally, Brie was made in the French region Brie, of which it’s named after.
Président Double Brie
Inspired by the famed Meaux region of France, Président’s rich, creamy Double Brie is made in the traditional way by master cheesemakers. It’s a true reflection of the authentic French Brie style with its complex, ‘earthy’ aroma, soft, runny centre, creamy texture and white bloomy rind.
Président Double Brie pairs well with both green and black olives, tapenades and a fruit chutney. If you want something a little more robust, try out some cured meats, like Bresaola, Prosciutto or Serrano Ham.
It’s also a great dessert cheese, and best consumed at room temperature.
