Brie is named after the region in France from which it originated. This triple cream, soft-ripened brie cheese is decadent and indulgent. The flavor is rich and earthy with mushroom notes and ranges from mild to full and aromatic, depending on age. As with most bloomy rind cheeses such as brie, the rind is often eaten.
