Brie Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Brie Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.

Brie Wine Pairing

Rich white wines and full-bodied reds go well with most cheeses and cheese-based dishes. Some specific recommendations: chardonnay or pinot blanc with goat cheese; dry chenin blanc with earthy cheeses; rosé or sercial madeira with melted-cheese appetizers; port with blue cheese (especially stilton); amontillado sherry or syrah/shiraz with strong cheeses; olooros or palo cortado sherry with creamy cheeses; merlot or carménère with mild cheeses; cabernet sauvignon, malbec, mourvèdre, Rhône blends, or petite sirah with cheddar- or gouda-type cheeses; nero d'avola with full-flavored Spanish or Italian cheeses; sangiovese with dishes using parmigiano-reggiano and similar cheeses.
