Indulge in this unique, creamy brie!
Although most brie is made from raw milk, this pasteurized version is one of our favorites. This brie has a velvety bloom rind, and a delectably smooth, flowing interior. With double cream, its mild yet rich flavour has notes of mushrooms, garlic, and hazelnut, with a slight tang.
Brie is a must-have on any cheese board, the great unifier for cheese lovers. This brie oozes its creamy interior when warmed, and can be used in both sweet and savoury preparations. For a wine match, experiment with both lightly oaked New World Chardonnay, as well as the classic French unoaked varietal, or anything sparkling!
ABOUT BENTON BROTHERS FINE CHEESE
Engineer brothers turned cheesemongers, specializing in Artisan Cheese!
As the name suggests, this company is owned and operated by two brothers, Jonah and Andrew Benton. Both brothers studied engineering before falling in love with the cheese business. After Andrew graduated, he was looking for a job in his new field and his Dad suggested looking for another job in the meantime. Andrew ended up taking a position at a cheese shop (which his Dad approved of, thinking of the possibility of cheese discounts). As Andrew’s passion for cheese grew, he shared it with his brother, Jonah, who had been working as an Engineer for a couple years, and the rest is history.
After about a decade working in the cheese industry in Alberta and Ontario they relocated to Vancouver and started Benton Brothers Fine Cheese in 2007. They sell the highest quality artisan cheese from Canada and around the world. You will find these cheeses are often more complex in flavour as they are made by skilled cheesemakers with age-old recipes and without machinery. With the Brothers’ passion for all things food, wine, and cheese, it’s no wonder Benton Brother’s is a mainstay of the Granville Island Community.
