All about Brie de Meaux > From the market to your plate


Refuse a grayish, overly red or uneven rind, or any cheese with a curd that detaches from the rind. Smell and refuse any cheese that has a scent of ammonia.


Brie de Meaux keeps very well in the lower part of the refrigerator, wrapped separately.


Simply take it out 45 minutes before serving so that the room temperature restores all its flavor and refinement.
