SOLD OUT

When you didn't think we could give you enough cheese, then we pull out this. Bongrain's monster 3kg wheel of French Mon Pére Brie (1kg wheel also available). In fact, this French wheel is so big and unique, there isn't even a photo of it on the internet!

Further Details...

Mention Paris and you probably immediately think of the Eiffel Tower, maybe the Moulin Rouge, a vibrant cityscape full of elegant women in haute couture. Yet a mere half an hour east of the city (or a good half day on a vintage bicycle), although still classified as metropolitan Paris, things take a distinct turn for the rural – think more berets than Balenciaga…

TASTE

The inviting exterior of this Brie-style cheese is soft and white when young, but with additional ageing will become crusty and mottled with brown spots. The flavour is lightly earthy, with mushroomy, grassy notes that intensify with time. On the inside it is rich and creamy with an ivory colour contrasting beautifully with the rind. Leave out of the fridge for several hours to allow its generous paste to ooze. 

FACT OF THE DAY

The word Brie itself is not protected so to this day we still see producers around the world appropriating the name for cheeses that bear very little resemblance to classic French Brie. We hear that even the Chinese produce a “Brie” these days, although don’t expect to be ordering it through Cheese Therapy any time soon…

Rich creamy cheese

Love the cheese. It is rich and creamy and delicious

Surprisingly ordinary

A bit disappointing after our previous brie cheeses from cheese therapy. Perhaps it was too under ripe, but had little of the luscious creaminess nor the flavour it should have. Don't expect a D’affinois! C’est la vie?

F
Françoise Muller Robbie (Elwood, AU)
Brie Français

Not bad...a bit over ripe.
