I eat it all. Love it warm with a baguette and fruit.

Did they name it after that girl on “Mad Men?” I’d be very flattered if someone named cheese after me.

When I'm feeling fancy, I wrap it in a Pillsbury croissant and bake it in the oven at 350 for about 15 minutes.

I haven't eaten Brie cheese in a long time, but I do eat the rind.

Occasionally, the ammonia smell on a brie is a tad off-putting.

by Anonymousreply 7May 12, 2024 6:25 PM

My sister-in-law does that for New Year's Eve hors d'oeuvres r5. It's very good.

I don't care if people eat the rind or not, as long as the non-rind-eaters cut off the whole piece and separate the rind on their own plate. I take issue with scoopers.

I do a brie wheel, topped with apricot preserves and pecans in puff pastry with water crackers. It's like crack. I catered a small wedding and people gobbled it up.

Except for the water crackers. Bland, boring texture as well.

In my opinion.

Water crackers are supposed to be bland, non? It's a vehicle for the cheese.

by Anonymousreply 11May 12, 2024 6:55 PM

The crackers should be bland R10. You want the other flavors, not a pepper cracker competing.

In my opinion.

St. André is my favorite Brie-like cheese. Let it sit out overnight to ripen. I like it spread on good bread. All of these double- and triple-creme cheeses are better on bread than on crackers. Fromager d'Affinois is another good one.

I baked a round of brie cheese inside a pastry shell once and it turned into such an oily, oozing mess that I had to throw it out.

Why have a white, flat, bland cracker (water cracker) - even the texture is boring.

When you could some kind of crusty bread? Or a salty, savory cracker.

by Anonymousreply 25May 12, 2024 8:26 PM

Cheese encased in puff pastry with more bread? A bit redundant.

Bread is best with plain brie.

Isn't saying "Brie Cheese" a bit redundant?

It's like saying "the hoi polloi" or "exact same" or "compare and contrast."

I thought brie only smelled like ammonia when it went bad. Can any cheese experts enlighten me on this?

by Anonymousreply 28May 12, 2024 8:53 PM

compare and contrast is not redundant.

[quote]compare and contrast is not redundant.

By definition when you "compare" two or more things, you identify the similarities AND differences. Including a requirement to "contrast" the things being compared is redundant to the request to compare them.

I’m not a fan of the crust, but will eat it if I’m in company.

And, yes - a salty baguette is better than water biscuits, I think!

by Anonymousreply 32May 12, 2024 9:15 PM

R27 & R30, I believe compare means to tell how two or more things are alike while contrast means to tell how two or more things are different. At least that’s what Larry Bell proclaims.

I agree with another poster - I prefer Camembert

by Anonymousreply 34May 12, 2024 9:55 PM

Honestly, I can't really tell much difference between Brie and Camembert. Maybe I need to try a side by side tasting.

by Anonymousreply 35May 12, 2024 10:42 PM

Ammonia odor is a sign of decomposition in cheese past its prime. Some brave souls will eat it anyway.

by Anonymousreply 36May 12, 2024 10:54 PM

I've never tried Camembert. I like Brie, but it's so mild-tasting. I prefer cheddar and feta and cheeses with stronger flavors.

by Anonymousreply 37May 12, 2024 10:58 PM

R18 Cambozola is my absolute favorite! (A combination, I believe, of Camembert and blue cheese)

Brie fungus is canabilised to near extinction. Brie may be green and blue not white, in the near future.

The triple creme Brie at Trader Joe's is the best brie I've tasted in the states. It has a very strong buttery taste.

by Anonymousreply 40May 12, 2024 11:12 PM

Yes r28. I believe it's a mix of gorgonzola and camembert. The consistency on a nice hunk of any French bread is magnificent.

Dear god, go back to flyoverstan and drink from the finger bowls.

[quote]The rind on Brie not only protects and encases the cheese – it also adds a subtle, earthy flavor. With a soft and tender texture, it is meant to complement the paste inside.

[quote]The rind on Brie is a bloomy rind that grows from the molds and bacteria used to make Brie. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), these types of mold are beneficial and safe to consume

No, not really.

Brie, like Cheddar, is a place. So "Brie cheese" refers to a cheese made in Brie, just as "Cheddar cheese" refers to a cheese made in Cheddar. Since other things are also made in those places, the terms are not technically redundancies.

But, since most people know what you mean when you say just "brie" or just "cheddar" as stand-alone nouns (because the cheeses are so internationally famous), it sounds weird to many people to add "cheese" after the place names.
