Ile de France BrieRicher, Creamy flavor revealed

Fresh, natural ingredients and traditional cheese-making methods produce the rich, full flavor that's made Ile de France Brie famous.

Crafted in Normandy, France, Ile de France Brie is made of the fresh milk of grass fed cows and is rBST free. Ile de France Brie is named after the town of Brie - the French province where it originated - and the famous Ile de France ocean liner, which first delivered Brie to the United States in 1936.

 
La crème du jourFreshest, all-natural ingredients do matter
A well-kept secret!

We make our own cream from freshly collected milk and add it to cheese making the very same day. At its freshest, it delivers to the cheese an exceptionally rich creamy flavor.

 

We have a dedicated rBST-free milk supply that insure only the freshest milk is used to produce Ile de France Brie.

That is THE Ile de France Brie difference

 
Flavor profile

It all starts with a clean, fresh milky note. Then the deliciously creamy texture of our Brie takes over making the flavor bloom into rich, full mode to end with hazelnut and light mushroom aftertaste.

 
History

In 1936, Ile de France Brie was brought to the United States aboard the famed Ile de France ocean liner - the first refrigerated sea vessel. It was the first time Americans had access to the delicate French fromage. Ile de France takes its name from the famous ship and continues to supply authentic French Brie to American cheese lovers.

Serving tips

- Brie is most flavorful when served at room temperature. Remove Brie from the refrigerator about 45 minutes before serving.

- Traditionally, Brie is served with the rind intact, though many people prefer it with the rind removed.

- A wheel of Brie should be cut like a cake, with wedges cut in slices lengthwise.

- Dip your cheese knife in hot water, so the cheese won't stick to it.

The number of ways to enjoy Brie is limited only by your imagination. Whether served on a hearty baguette with a glass of wine or inside an intricate entrée recipe - like our Brie Membrillo and Asian Pear Crostini or Brie Stuffed Pork Chops with Pomegranate Glaze - there's surely a Brie recipe for any meal or occasion.

Costco has 1kg wheels of Brie. The mushroom aroma and texture of the skin is wonderful. Did you know that there are people who actually throw away the skin! I would almost toss the cheese and just eat the skin - but who would do that...

Like many others on this comment board, I am wishing the the little round brie in the net bag were available. Costco had them last year and now nada. They were perfect for lunch at work. Please, please bring them back. Heck, I'll even pay retail for them :o)
