The famous French gastronome and politician Brillat-Savarin is the namesake of this buttery French triple-crème cheese. Its delicate, bloomy white rind contains a velvety paste with the texture of whipped buttercream. With notes of sweet cream, strained yogurt, and savory button mushrooms, this rich cheese is a decadent treat when enjoyed with Champagne and fresh berries, or with a dollop of Sidehill Strawberry Jam atop a flaky Effie’s Oatcake.

  • Brillat Savarin is a triple-crème cheese. A double-crème cheese has between 60-75% butterfat by dry weight. Triple crème cheeses have more than 75% butterfat by dry weight, or roughly 40% fat overall.
  • This cheese was created around 1890 as "Excelsior" or "Délice des Gourmets" ("Gourmets' delight").
  • Cheesemaker Henri Androuët renamed it in the 1930s, as an homage to 18th-century French gastronome and political figure Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin who coined the phrase, “Tell me what you eat and I will tell you who you are.”
  • Brillat-Savarin is produced year-round in Burgundy, a region known for its soft cheeses.
