I'm in the mood to try different cheeses rather than limiting myself to the mundane kinds I normally buy.
A dear friend of mine, Sarie, used brie in one of her recipes recently. It reminded me that the one time I bought myself some many, many years ago, I'd liked it.
Sarie recommended a brand with the Eiffel Tower on it but I haven't found that one yet. I bought some in Florida earlier this month (I can't remember the brand name) and then this package today here in town.
I know it has a lot of fat (9 grams in a one inch cube) so I plan to eat only a small amount at a time, perhaps with a cracker in a lawn chair on the deck or screen porch.
Do you like the white rind that surrounds the block of cheese? I know it's edible, but sometimes I remove it. Does it have its own taste or is it my imagination?
I plan to try gouda next.
