What is it?

A creamy, runny cow’s milk cheese named after the French province, Brie has a fruity, luxurious flavor and is ideal served at room temperature or slightly warmed. The cheese takes between one to three months to ripen and forms a soft, moldy rind that is meant to be eaten with the interior. True Brie cheese is made with unpasteurized cow’s milk, but United States laws prohibit raw milk products aged for less than sixty days, so you’re only apt to find Brie-style cheeses in the U.S. rather tan true Brie.
