Full Product Details
Brie cheeses are known world-wide for their downy white rind and cream-colored, soft interior that oozes when at the peak of ripeness and temperature. Brie’s taste is sweet and buttery with hint of almond flavor. This version is lovingly infused with chives. The most prized and celebrated of all French cheeses, Brie is believed to have been created prior to the Eighth Century. Charlemagne's chronicler, Eginhard de Saint Gall, reported that the Emperor enjoyed it at the Priory of Rueil in the town of Brie in the year 774. In 1815, the Prince of Tallyrand named Brie "Le Roi de Fromages" - The King of Cheeses. At 60%, Henri Hutin Brie has higher than average fat in dry matter for a double cream, as well as a moisture content of 50%. (Some other Bries contain as low as 40%, while most fall around 50%.) With its ultra-milky interior and tender rind that is not overly pungent, this Brie is a true French delicacy. This French Brie is shipped uncut in its original form. Enjoy it with a glass of champagne!
- Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
