Brie de Meaux
Famous since the time of Charlemagne, Brie de Meaux is the classic and original Brie cheese, made just outside Paris in the Île-de-France. It was famously crowned the ‘king of cheeses’ by Talleyrand in the 1814 Congress of Vienna.
Some struggle to tell the difference between Brie and Camembert. Despite both being made from cows’ milk and both being soft cheeses, they are, however, quite different.
