December Cheese of the Month: Belletoile Triple Cream Brie

Posted on December 4th, 2013 by Sendik's

Country of Origin: France

Variety: Brie

Milk: Cow’s Milk

Notes: Rich, creamy, ultra smooth.

Brie is the most popular of all imported French cheeses for good reason. Belletoile is exceptional. Rich. Luscious. Heavenly. Belletoile Triple Cream Brie is a sinfully seductive, soft-ripened treat that’s sure to entice even the most demanding cheese lover. It comes packaged with a star label on each wedge, a reference to its name which, roughly translated, means “beautiful star”.

Like other triple cream cheeses, Belletoile is made from cow’s milk with additional cream added. This gives the cheese a decadently buttery interior that’s much richer than traditional brie. At 70% butterfat, this cheese’s interior is extremely creamy and ultra smooth to the point of being spreadable.

This luscious French treat is encased by a beautiful white edible rind and can be sliced and served elegantly atop crusty French bread topped with brown sugar and slivered almonds.
