Brie cheese

At the end of the Napoleonic wars in 1815, Brie was crowed King of cheeses, "Le Roi de Fromages". Unfortunately most of the cheese calling itself Brie no longer comes from the Brie region of France. The largest producers are in Lorraine, France. If you want to taste the flavor of properly made brie, seek out Brie de Meaux. Further make sure the brie is labeled "Appellation d'Origine Controlee". If it is not, but still bears the name, then it is from the region but not "controlled" and a lesser quality. Short of that, purchase a good quality brie from a reputable cheese seller. The grocery store versions simply taste like rubberized wall paper paste. Brie must warm at least 25 minutes outside of the refrigerator before it is served.
