Brie is best served at room temperature, so leave out of the fridge for about an hour prior to indulging! Brie is best served with crusty bread or plain crackers (something that won’t compete with the flavour of the cheese. Brie also is complimented alongside fruits like apple, pears, grapes and berries as well as unsalted nuts such as walnuts, almonds or pecans. To pair with wine, dry white wines such as Pinot Grigo or Sauvignon Blanc work well.
Brie is the best known French cheese and has a nickname “The Queen of Cheeses”. Brie is slightly pale in colour with a grey-like tinge under a rind. People wonder if the rind is edible, it is! It is meant to be eaten and actually adds to the flavour and character of Brie. Its flavour varies depending upon the ingredients added while producing the cheese.
