Description of cheese
The name Brie is applied to big, round, soft cheeses with white mould. On average they have a diameter of 28cm. Their taste is aromatic with mushroom and hazelnut overtones.
Brie is a mild, creamy representative of the Brie family. It can be found in supermarkets in a 200 gram triangular piece of loaf or as a Petit Brie - a small whole Brie of 500 grams in a wooden box.
Brie has a slight bitter taste that if left to unfold, develops into a completely soft, hazelnut and fruit flavour.
