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.
