Learn everything about this beloved, creamy cheese in my ultimate guide to brie, including what it tastes like & how to serve &  store it.

What is Brie?

Brie is a soft, buttery cow’s milk cheese named after Brie, a region in Northern France. It’s enveloped in a bright white, edible rind with a soft center that’s gooey when baked.


Serving Ideas for Brie

Baked Brie – Bake a wheel of Brie cheese in the oven at 350 degrees until the center is gooey – about 15 mins. Top with your favorite jam & walnuts. Serve warm with crackers.


Brie bites – I love to pair a slice of brie with ritz cracker and jam, especially with spicy pepper jelly or a fig jam!

How to Store Brie

Don’t suffocate your cheese with plastic wrap, which encourages mold growth. Let it breathe. Instead wrap it loosely in parchment paper and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Substitutes for Brie

If your local grocery store is fresh out of Brie, don’t panic. Try  Camembert cheese, Saint Andre, Coulommiers or Chevre Cheese.
