This soft bloomy-rind cheese is made from the perfect blend of pasteurized milk and cream. It is a succulent soft cheese that is lightly honeycombed and whose subtle taste is underlined by a hint of mushroom flavour.
It is perfect for tasting platters and for hors d’oeuvres, such as these smoked salmon delicacies or these fig and prosciutto bites.
There's a house on a beach in Normandy, one of many whose windows looked out to the sea, where people watched as Canadian soldiers far from home came in with the tide on D Day, June 6, 1944. It took hours before they reached the house that had guided them to shore, and it still stands today, bearing witness to thousands whose long march began the first steps to freedom. Normandie Double Cream Brie is a tribute to the flags that were raised in victory along the coastline that day.
Normandie Double Cream Brie is available from the cheese maker and in most speciality cheese shops and supermarkets.
