Brillat-Savarin is a triple cream dessert cheese that was created by cheese-maker Henri Androuët in the 1930s. It is named after 19th century gastronome and epicure, Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin.
It is an industrial cheese produced by three dairies situated in the Ile de France region. Since classified as a triple cream cheese, Brillat-Savarin has a fat content of at least 75% achieved by adding rich, luscious cream to whole milk.
Young cheeses taste similar to fresh cheese but usually they are matured for about four to five weeks to develop more complex flavours.
