This triple cream white mould was created in the 1930’s by Henri Androuët and named after the renowned 18th Century food writer, Brillat-Savarin who claimed ‘A meal without some cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye’. The cheese is mild in flavour when young but as it matures it will develop rich, complex flavours that meld beautifully together. The white velvety mould encases a soft and creamy interior. During maturation the rind may develop small patches of orange mould.

    Fluffy Clouds of White encase a mousse like delight

    Will Studd is not wrong about this one. And 500g is not too much to order, so go ahead, add to cart! A thin and completely edible rind cuts easily, without any resistance or rubbery cheese underneath. What you will find is a layer of snow white mousse with an almost liquid, but slightly tart goats-cheese-like centre. Ditch the cracker and eat off the back of your spoon.
