      Brie de Meaux PDO
      Brie













The history of Brie de Meaux PDO is the result of the long tradition of Brie cheeses in France. Indeed, the Brie cheese was already known by Charles the Great who highly appreciated it. In 1814, during a dinner of ambassadors who were invited to bring from their Country an original cheese, the Brie de Meaux PDO was awarded with the first prize, meriting the nickname of "king of cheeses" and of "cheese of kings".



Description



Brie de Meaux PDO has a delicate and refined flavour. It is a soft-paste cheese, with a white and velvety, flowered rind which, get russet with ripening.



Cooking



Brie de Meaux PDO can be conserved in the least cold compartment of the refrigerator, sealed into a box. It must be eaten at room temperature, and the rind must not be removed. Brie de Meaux PDO is a typical table cheese and can be used as second course or at the end of a meal accompanied by fruit. In addition, as it easily melts, it is very good as an ingredient to prepare first and second courses and for the crêpes. Its peculiar delicate aroma, with a walnut aftertaste, is enhanced by the combination with Bourgogne or Bordeaux wines. The city of Meaux has officially combined this cheese with the wine of Givry.
