Brillat-Savarin is a famous triple cream cheese, named after an equally famous French foodie – the 19th century gastronomy Jean Anthelme Brillat Savarin. This cheese with impeccable pedigree is beloved for its sumptuous, decadent texture, melting in your mouth with a velvety lusciousness. This luxurious cheese has a fat content of at least 75%, thanks to the addition of rich cream. The result is dense and moist cheese with milky notes and just an amazing mouthfeel.

About Brillat Savarin Cheese
A relatively new cheese in French terms, Brillat Savarin was created by Henri Androuët in the 1930s, as an industrial cheese, rather than an artisan, small batch cheese. It has nothing to envy artisan cheeses though: this triple cream is beloved by French foodies and cheese lovers from around the world.
How is Brillat Savarin Made
Brillat Savarin is produced by three diaries in Ile de France – near Paris – and is made unique by the addition of cream. This makes Brillat incredibly luscious, and bring its fat content up to at least 75%. It’s also classified as a bloomy rind cheese, similar to Brie, with a white, dusty outer rind that once you cut into reveals a dense, luscious paste that is a glory to bite into.
