Brie Cheese

Brie Cheese Tonight, I decided to treat myself to a glass of wine and my favorite cheese: brie.

Brie is undoubtedly one of the best known and most well-loved of the French cheeses. I mean, it’s even nicknamed “The Queen of Cheeses!” (A name I feel it truly deserves.)

The round disk of soft, sweet cheese is often found with a powdery white rind, but don’t be intimidated, it’s edible. (Promise!) It’s served in a variety of ways, including: room-temperature with crackers and fruit preserves; and baked into a sweet and crispy pastry crust with cranberries and almonds. You will typically see a lot this delectable cheese around the holidays–and it is sure to delight your host if you bring it to a party as an appetizer.

Soft cheeses, like brie, are usually paired with a dry Riesling, Chardonney, or Champagne. I picked up one of my favorite Rieslings and served my brie at room temp with Glutino Table Crackers and Strawberry Preserves!
