Brie CheeseBrie cheese is a graceful and delectable cheese from France. If you are a cheese aficionado, you ought to know how to eat Brie cheese. It is after all, it is one of the most delightful treat, enjoyed by the kids and adults alike. Brie cheese is characterized by a rich and creamy center (that leaves you amazed each time you bite into it) and an edible, but tasteless rind. While the younger versions of this cheese have a soft, melting texture, the cheese gets a stronger flavor and crumblier texture as it ages.


 


 



Types of Brie Cheese


Traditionally, this French cheese is prepared using unpasteurized milk. However, most Brie cheese available in the U.S. market today, are made using pasteurized milk.

Tips for Eating Brie Cheese

Eat Brie Cheese At Room Temperature.


As a rule, French cheeses are enjoyed as such. So, the case remains same with Brie cheese as well. However, if you like your cheese warm, then bake brie cheese to a temperature that is just above room temperature and enjoy it.


                                                                                                                                                      


Eat With The Rind.


Though, many prefer to scrape off the tasteless rind from the cheese, a diehard cheese lover will always want to taste the Brie cheese in its true form - with rind. Eating Brie cheese with rind turns your cheese eating experience into a gastronomical adventure of sorts.


                                                                                                                                                  


Eat Alone Or As A Combo.

Eat As An Appetizer.


You can use brie cheese as an appetizer at a full course dinner or a party. Since the cheese quite rich and filling, you may choose to keep the rest of the meal menu on a lighter tone.

if the brie sits out for more than four hours, is it safe to rewrap it and put it back in the fridge for another day? Can it turn toxic?
