Cheese Trip

Cheese Trip: Brie

12 May , 2015  

Last night I had a delicious brie and salmon pizza, cooked to perfection in a nearby Italian eatery. Most of my friends turned up their noses at the pizza – literally, because the brie was just too stinky. Unfortunately for this cheese, it’s infamous the world over because of its smell, which has been likened to the smell of ammonia. 

But true cheese gourmands have already learnt to overlook brie’s smell because of its taste. Soft and silky, brie has a taste that falls somewhere between buttery and fruity, which makes it ideal for a great number of recipes. Before we get to the recipes, here’s a short video to show you how brie is made. 

Now that you’re better acquainted with the story behind brie, maybe you’ll be excited to try out a few recipes where it is the star. So, heads up for recipe land!

1) Smoked Salmon and Brie Parcels

If you’re set on having salmon with your brie, then try these rolls – they take only about ten minutes to make. Their flavours perfectly complement each other. 

2) Brie Pizza

While I loved the brie and salmon combination, I understand that there are some vegetarians out there who may not be too pleased with that. So, try out this vegetarian option instead; it’ll be just as delicious. Try using ready-made pizza dough.

 3) Roast Zucchini and Brie Sandwich 

This is another one for the vegetarians – make a healthy, light lunch with this insanely easy recipe.

4) Grilled Brie and Pear Sandwich

If you thought that brie tastes delicious in a grilled sandwich, then here’s another easy recipe for you to try.

5) Brie Risotto 

Appease your Italian cravings with this Brie risotto; the brie’s creaminess gives the risotto a beautiful texture.

6) Pesto Brie or Brie Dessert

Whether you’re looking for a savoury or sweet brie recipe, this video has two recipes that will keep you covered. 

7) Baked Brie

Brie is such a beautiful cheese that it can hold up proudly as a standalone dish. Simply add some rosemary and garlic to the top of the brie, bake it and you’re good to go! 

We hope we’ve convinced you that the answer to the question ‘to brie or not to brie’ is always in the affirmative. Get past the smell, brie has more important stories to tell.
