Like so many ladies out there, cheese and I get along quite nicely. In fact, I think I’d go as far to say that given a choice between cheese and chocolate, I may find myself in the biggest quandary of my life. Needless to say, I was tickled pink when the kind people at Ile de France offered not only to send me some cheese to try, but also to sponsor a giveaway for my lovely readers (thank you, Ile de France)!
I was thrilled to receive a very generous sample of their Brie to try. Ile de France makes their Brie with fresh cream (the cheese is made within 48 hours of milking the cows!), which ensures a fantastically rich flavor and creamy texture.
So what did I think of the Brie? Oh my. My, my, my. If I could eat this every day for the rest of my life I’d happily give up chocolate (ahem…most days, anyway ;) ). This is the best Brie I’ve ever had. And I do not say that lightly.
It starts with a super fresh milky flavor, and then the creamy, rich texture glides along your tongue. The last thing I tasted was a slight nuttiness. Sigh…amazing.
Now for the giveaway…Ile de France is providing 5 lucky winners with a cheese basket of their own! (Apologies to overseas readers, this giveaway is only open to U.S. residents.)
