By Rose | Storing Tips

Oh, Brie! Who can resist this delicious delicacy? Not me! And I bet you can’t keep it off your platter either!

The name is derived from the Brie region of France, and there is a good chance that this cheese was first manufactured there, so we have to thank the ingenuity of the folks there who first made this cheese.
