The slightly pale and deliciously creamy cheese called Brie is made from cow’s milk and is a favourite for anyone who likes their food soft. It is the perfect dessert cheese and works very well on a platter because it is served at room temperature. Pair it with dessert wine and you are overloaded with sweetness!
