Ile de France’s Supreme La Crème de la Crème

April 29, 2010

This double cream brie was a Christmas addition at The Lady’s kiosk. And now that it’s gone, she has customers asking for it. Alas, they will have to wait for the Christmas holidays to roll around again.

To make this brie even creamier, the cheesemakers added Crème Fraiche to bring the fat content up to 63%; now that’s a rich and creamy cheese… not for the faint of heart. Small portions are recommended.

This soft-ripened cheese with a bloomy rind is best served at room temperature. We had it spread on a freshly-baked and still-warm French Baguette. The taste is creamy and mellow; it feels like silk on the tongue.

This Feline Foodie has to say it is hard to beat French Brie; enjoying a wedge of Supreme… well… it makes you feel supreme…

I give Ile de France Supreme Brie 3 paws out of 4 Paws (cause that’s all I’ve got).

Serving Suggestions: On a cheese plate with a few hazelnuts and grapes and pears is perfect. Spread on a French Baguette is even better.

Wine Pairing: The Lady suggest a glass of champagne would be a nice touch.

Beer Pairing: A blonde ale.

    This is a lovely brie. Buttery in taste and texture. If you enjoy cheese, you must have this on your table!
