Brie is a soft cow’s milk cheese that’s aged with a mold rind.
Young brie (like the one pictured here) maintains a smooth soft texture that melts easily. The taste is mild, and the edible rind is bright and white.
This is so cool: from Wikipedia,
…each person partaking in the cheese receives a roughly equal amount of skin. Slices are taken along the radius of the cheese rather than across the point. Removing the more desirable tip from a wedge of brie is known as “pointing the Brie” and is regarded as a faux pas.
Ah, the French. Mais c’est la vie.
