A cheesy mystery.....

A cheesy mystery.....

Hello all!

I recently asked a friend to pick up wedge of Brillat Savarin cheese for me.....what I have on my hands (besides a very kind friend :) is about 1/2 pound of a cheese that has me a little baffled . Though I see the lettering "avarin" on a seal, it has no bloomy rind, as I'd expected. It seems almost like a rich, slightly tangy, and very delicious cream cheese, but not at all like a ripened cheese.

Anyone want to take a shot at figuring out what I'm eating (and serving with a dessert course this weekend?)
