Smile Cheese?

We make cheese trays once or twice a month.

What are your favorites?

We don't do much brie, as it's close to eating almost pure butter

We like a good, ripe Camambert

We llike Cambozola

Anything triple creme,

Drunken Goat

Manchego.....

We like those packs of Sopressata and salami....

Cornichons- gherkin pickles from France.

The sharpest cheddar I can find makes me happy. Kraft usually comes out with a Christmas one (silver wrapper) that's really sharp but I haven't seen it this year. Cabot's seriously sharp is pretty darned good too... me and the kids will bust one of those up in no time.

IMHO, with Sopressata you need aged Provologne... sharpness depends on the Sopressata.

Not sure how you can not like Camembert and not like Brie. Until a few years ago I owned and operated a Creamery producing specialty Goat Cheeses. The recipe for Brie and Camembert is EXACTLY the same. The difference is the size of the mold (the vessel it is prepared in not the stuff growing on the side which is called rind) Brie is a larger diameter and usually produced thinner. Camembert is a smaller and usually thicker. Although the traditional rules are not well kept and it is not uncommon to find Brie produced in Camembert molds and vice-a-versa. That being said I prefer Camembert because of the size being smaller they are consumed before they can absorb the flavor of what ever is aromatic in the refrigerator. Baked Brie (or Camembert) is a favorite of our family and it is very simple to make. Sorry to be long winded and not say much.

In flavor, Camembert is a little stonger than Brie. Brie is just a bit too bland for me, like eating butter..lol. Now I'm not referring to goat brie/ camembert either.

Cow wise, traditionally, as I understood it,

Bacterium Brevibacterium linens are used in Brie.

Penecillin Camemberti is added to Camembert.

Camembert ripens more quickly than Brie.

Very similar, as you noted, methods of production.

However, if you put them side by side, I just like the Camembert better.

The size of the mold is smaller for Camembert, it should lose its moisture faster when it ages, giving it a stronger taste.


edit:
Thanks for the input. This is just some of the stuff I learned, what, almost 20 yrs ago... What was it like to own a creamery? How do you not blow up to 500 lbs?! I think I'd eat the profits!



Kraft New York Extra Sharp Cheddar with a good fuji apple is a favorite, too!
