Smooth brie is a popular guest on a cheese board. Originally from the Brie region of France, this creamy cheese with mild, buttery notes is wonderfully rich and even sports an edible (quite tasty) rind.

Usually made from cow’s and, sometimes, goat’s milk, varieties of brie are sometimes made with extra cream, which end up being ultra-creamy and luxurious. The cheese’s neutral flavor allows it to pair with a wide range of sweet accoutrements, such as honey and jam, and it fits well in savory dishes, such as sandwiches, too. You can also warm up brie in the oven, where it will get irresistibly oozy and delicious.
