Frequently Asked Questions

What is brie cheese?

The main flavor profile of brie cheese, in my opinion, is butter. It’s soft + buttery + oh-so-rich. Made with cow’s milk, it is a French delicacy.

Should I cut the rind off?

Absolutely not! The rind of brie is delicious and fully edible; additionally, it serves as a binder — it helps the cheese hold its shape/not leak when warmed.

How should I score the brie?

I like scoring the top of the brie with a knife because it adds visual interest. The secret, however, is to not score it deeply. With a small knife, score just through the rind; you do not want to pierce the brie. This will enable the rind to still be binding, preventing a large leak of melted brie.

Where can I buy brie cheese? Is it expensive?

Brie is carried in almost every supermarket. Look in the cheese case near the deli, as it is most commonly beside the feta, bleu, and other specialty cheeses. Brie cheese is fairly priced, most usually the ballpark of $5-$8 (depending on maker).

Should you cover this baked brie with aluminum foil?

I personally do not — it won’t be the oven for an extended period; thus, you are good to go without aluminum foil.
