Ile de France, France
Mushroom, Damp Leaves, Butter
Would it be Christmas without a slice of Brie de Meaux? (of course not!) The ‘King of Cheeses’ really steps into the spotlight over the festive season, gracing cheese boards around the world with its oozy texture and recognisable pong. An absolute classic and you can see why - with its rich, golden oozing centre held together by its bloomy white (sometimes rusty coloured) rind. Complex, earthy flavours of mushroom, damp leaves and butter that linger and leave you wanting more.
TCG Top Tip: Spread generously on a crusty baguette and enjoy with a glass of something rich and festive.
