Le Châtelain Brie

I see this brie everywhere. Costco, ShopRite, online markets, the local cheesemonger's cave just to name a few spots. I wondered, I hesitated and I got caught up in goat cheese.

I read the write ups all over the Net:
...this award-winning brie is different, the cheesemonger assured him. Made in France, yet designed for U.S. market requirements of pasteurized milk and aging time, it's full-bodied and pungent, salty and a little sweet, funky like woodsy mushrooms, and absolutely luscious. This, with a good baguette and a few slices of fruit, makes the most wonderful dessert.

I expected a lot. And for $7.00 a wheel I wasn't gonna cry over blah cheese if it turned out to be a disappointment. But, it's excellent. Lived up to the description and wowed me spread on hot bread, honey and hazelnuts.

Don't miss's EVERYWHERE.
