Printable Cheese Note

Note: Occasionally, Brillat Savarin will have fluffy white spots known as 'bunny tails' on its surface. This is entirely natural and does not pose any issue regarding food safety. These small white mould clusters are Penicillium Candidum, similar to the moulds used on brie and camembert and develop as the cheese ages.

Will Studd selected Brillat Savarin (bree-YAY sah-vah-RAN) is made from whole milk with added crème fraîche in Burgundy. Brillat-Savarin can be served at many different ages, when young the texture is dense, the rind is mild and the flavour has a pleasant crème fraîche tang. As it matures, the rind blooms and becomes spicy, and the texture is like a rich, buttery mousse. For an indulgent breakfast, try Brillat-Savarin smeared on dense fruit bread, served with strawberries and Champagne.

A little history about Brillat Savarin

Triple cream cheeses were first made in the early 20th Century, by adding extra cream to the whole milk used to make cheese. This benchmark triple cream cheese was created by French cheesemaker Henri Androuët – son of the renowned French Maître Fromager, Pierre Androuët – in the 1950s. It is named for the renowned 18th Century lawyer, politician, author and gastronome, Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin. His famous book, The Physiology of Taste, is still sold today and contains many well-known sayings such as:

“Tell me what you eat and I shall tell you what you are”
