A striking, wrinkly square, Petit Brebicet is a pocket-size springtime treat. Beneath the distinctive brainy rind (known as a geo rind) lies a rich interior. A bite reveals notes of freshly baked bread and cream, with a barnyard-tinged finish. Flavorful but not overwhelming, it wouldn’t be out of place at a Mother’s Day brunch. And true to its name, it’s petite—perfect for stashing in a picnic basket alongside Fabrique Delices Saucisson Sec and Jan's Farmhouse Cranberry & Pistachio Crisps.
- Cheeses with brainy rinds like Petit Brebicet are known as geo rind cheeses because the rind is formed by the yeast-like fungus geotrichum candidum.
- Geo rind cheeses belong to the bloomy rind family—cheeses that are known for their often creamy texture and soft, edible rind.
- Creamy Petit Brebicet is a perfect match with the light saltiness of buttery olives, like Castelvetranos.
