The mild flavor of brie cheese lends it to lots of different food pairings. Traditional pairings for brie cheese include lots of fruit, but also some savory options. Many fruits are sweet and acidic and these qualities for beautifully with the thick and creamy consistency of brie and the mild buttery and savory flavor.
Specific fruits include apple, pear, grapes, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, figs, peach, and apricot. I always prefer brie cheese to be served with plain bread or crackers as its milk flavor can be easily overwhelmed with common seasonings such as garlic and onion, garden vegetable or cracked pepper.
Is anyone else tempted to follow a keto diet just so you can eat cheese with every meal? Luckily cheese is both nutritious and delicious, and with more and more plant-based cheeses hitting the market, it is an important part of any diet. Many cheeses are high in calories, but as long as you control the quality, the caloric count is no reason to avoid cheese as part a balanced diet.
