When you think of spring, what comes to mind? Perhaps you think about sunshine, blue skies, and the occasional thunderstorm. Or maybe warm weather pops into your mind.
Sure, the elements of nature likely flood your thoughts, but others may think FOOD; multi-colored Spring fruits and vegetables at farmers markets and produce stands, and the aroma of hot dogs and hamburgers sizzling on a hot grill.
Can you guess what else people love about Spring? CHEESE! Yes, springtime is for cheese lovers.
Remember nature’s elements mentioned above? When working together, they produce bright green, more flavorful and abundant pastures for animals to graze on. Those fulfilling pastures not only affect the quality of milk produced, they also affect the quality of the cheese – the milk of the animals gets richer, with a higher fat content.
Now that we’ve piqued your interest, let’s talk about the soft cow’s cheese that’s perfect for the springtime – Brie.
Brie, aka “The Queen of Cheeses”, according to igourmet.com, is named after the French region Brie, in which it originated. The runny, soft-ripened cheese is awesome, no matter how you slice, melt, or spread it.
Brie is so versatile. It can be dressed up to adorn a cheese platter, be the center of attention in a puff pastry, or turned into a late-night snack that you can’t seem to resist. But the fun doesn’t stop there.
