Brie de Meaux Cheese, Strong, smelly French Brie
Succulent, tasty, strong
DESCRIPTIONBrie de Meaux French Brie is the real original smelly Brie. A strong soft cheese full of flavour with a magnificent odour and a soft, creamy interior. Legend has it that it was much loved by Charlemagne. It was named as "King of Cheeses" by Tallyrand in 1815. It has a soft, delicate white rind. The interior of the cheese is straw-yellow, creamy and soft.
Brie de Meaux is made with raw cow's milk. It takes about 25 litres of milk to make a large cheese. The fermented milk is placed in a tank for 16 hours, then put in a bowl for curding which lasts one hour. It is then cut into small cubes with a slice-curd. Finally, it is moulded by hand .
It is usually matured for 6 to 8 weeks. Throughout the ripening period, cheeses are routinely turned by hand.
