Brillat-Savarin is a decadent triple cream gourmet cheese; one of the richest cheeses. A taste to be savored when you are feeling truly ready to be pampered. Brillat-Savarin was created by Henri Androuet. He gave it the name of the famous 18th century French gastronome, Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, the author of the 'Physiologie du gout' (Physiology of Taste), published in 1826; 'Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are.'
Brillat-Savarin is made from pasteurized cow's milk, enriched with cream. It is a soft-white cheese of round shape with a thick, velvety, white crust. It has a light downy white rind and the cheese cuts like butter. Brillat-Savarin has a really milky aroma with light lemon sour tones. The adage for this cheese is 'the younger the better.' If allowed to mature for too long, the rind darkens and the paste becomes unpleasantly oily.
