Brie de Meaux is a soft, creamy, and buttery cheese that originated in the town of Meaux, in the region of Île-de-France, France. It is considered one of the finest examples of French cheese, and has been made for centuries using traditional methods.

Brie de Meaux is made from raw cow's milk, which is curdled using a lactic starter and rennet. The curds are then cut and ladled into molds, where they are allowed to drain and form a soft, creamy texture. The cheese is then salted and left to age for a minimum of four weeks, during which time it develops a white, bloomy rind.

The cheese has a rich, creamy flavor, with a buttery and slightly nutty taste. The texture is soft and creamy, with a thin, velvety rind that adds a slightly earthy flavor. The cheese has a mild aroma, with hints of mushroom and hay.

Brie de Meaux is a versatile cheese that can be served on its own, or used as an ingredient in a range of dishes, such as omelets, quiches, and sandwiches. It pairs well with a range of wines, including Champagne, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir.

Brie de Meaux is considered a delicacy and is protected by the French government under the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) designation, which ensures that the cheese is produced using traditional methods and only in the designated region of France.
