Brie and Camembert are among the best-known French cheeses. Both Brie white mould-ripened cheeses traditionally made with raw milk and deliciously creamy texture.
Brie, named after the French region of Brie, is also known as the ‘Queen of Cheeses’. It has a soft, creamy texture and its taste will depend on the ingredients that are used.
Camembert hails from the Normandy region of France and was first produced by a local farmer, Marie Harel, in 1791. Like Brie, Camembert is a creamy cheese that is milky and sweet when young and becomes rich and buttery as it matures.
Both Brie and Camembert are white mould-ripened cheeses traditionally made with raw milk. Most modern Camembert and Brie cheeses are stabilised using a thermophilic starter such as our E starter.
