Brie - Defined
Brie—Name of a very rich cream cheese made near Paris, France, is of a circular form, an inch thick, wrapped in parchment paper, put into thin wooden boxes and imported to this country; it is, however, very much, and fairly well imitated by our own cheese manufacturers.
Fromage de brie. The richest of cheeses, flat and thin; each one is in a box by itself. It usually turns soft, and runs more or less with age, but is then esteemed the most. It is a cream cheese and like the cream cheeses made at some country dairies, but with better keeping qualities. It is about the same price as Camembert.
