Comox Brie

Comox Brie is a soft bloomy rind cheese that takes its name after Comox, a small town near Courtenay, Vancouver Island. This is also the hometown of Natural Pastures Cheese Company, the maker of the cheese.

Comox Brie exemplifies how authentic Brie should be. It has a thin and moist downy white rind, a traditional, gentle yet slightly buttery taste, pungent & mushroomy aromas and delightful, creamy texture that becomes runny over time as the cheese ripens from outside in.

This is an award winning cheese having been a finalist at the 2011 Canadian Cheese Grand Prix and won gold medal at the 2008 World Championship.
