Brillat-Savarin cheese 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.'
