Just in case the triple cream cheese Brillat Savarin isn’t indulgent enough for you, we have this version with a layer of shaved truffle through the middle. The characteristic light, creamy interior is complimented by the delicate perfume of black truffles – it is like eating whipped cream with truffles. The texture is smooth and soft – not runny, but definitely ‘melt-in-the-mouth’ territory.

Serving suggestion: Brillat with truffles is the perfect cheese to feature on a cheese board. It will pair well with fresh breads and dried fruit as well as chocolate! The rind can be bitter, try a bite with the paste for a lovely contrast!
Wine Pairing: This cheese pairs perfectly with sparkling wines – either sweet or dry, especially Champagne. Full bodied reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Barolo also work very well. This cheese also goes well with sweet desert wines such as Port, Ice Wine, and Late Harvest Riesling.
Easy eaten first! Triple cream and truffle, who can say no?!
