Brie, also known as the Queen of Cheeses, is a soft and creamy dessert cheese, originally from France. Authentic Brie is typically made from unpasteurized milk, but due to legislation concerning the use of raw milk in the United States, pasteurized milk versions of Brie are more commonly available. Varieties of Brie include Brie de Meaux, which is regarded as the finest French Brie followed by Brie de Melun and Brie de Montereau. Brie is generally served at room temperature or slightly warm, in which case the its soft and creamy centre oozes of delicious goodness. Brie is usually accompanied by fruit, Bread, Champagne or as a fondue.
