Brie is a soft cow's milk cheese named after Brie, the French province in which it originated (roughly corresponding to the modern département of Seine-et-Marne). It is pale in color with a slight grayish tinge under crusty white mould; very soft and savory with a hint of ammonia. The white moldy rind is tasteless and edible. There are now many varieties of Brie made all over the world, including plain Brie, herbed varieties, double and triple brie and versions of Brie made with other types of milk. Brie is perhaps the most well-known French cheese, and is popular throughout the world.
