This isn't really a recipe, but I decided to blog about something I just recently tried. :)

Mmmm....over the weekend me and my boyfriend had gone to his bosses cottage to help out with moving some stuff around, and to just plain enjoy the scenery up North.
It was a gorgeous Fall day and the house was super cozy with the mini fire place going.
It's amazing too how food can enhance any sort of situation or event.
And I will share one super amazing food I tried for the first time and will probably indulge with on a regular basis.


Yummy yummy Brie.

Brie is a French cheese with the nickname "The Queen of Cheeses" it was said that several hundred years ago, Brie was one of the tributes given to the French kings.
Brie is a creamy cow's milk cheese from France and is said to be a dessert cheese ( although I do find the cheese a bit salty ). Brie is manufactured all over the world but true Brie is traditionally French and is unavailable in the US/Canada. True Brie is made from unpasteurized milk and the Department of Agriculture probitis raw milk cheese to be more then 60 days old. So unfortunately to be able to try out true Brie, you'd probably have to buy a ticket to France, and that can get expensive.

Nevertheless, Brie made outside of France is still beyond delicious. You can serve it at room temperature or throw it in the oven for about 10 minutes or when it's slightly melted, you take it out ( peel the rind off the time ) and put whatever garnish you'd like to eat it with. Jam, pesto, garlic, whatever you have a craving for.
And you just smear it onto anything cheese can be smeared onto.
I just decided to make a little note of this, as some people are afraid of different types of cheeses and it can get pretty expensive.

But this stuff is absolutely delish and it would be a pity if you didn't try this deliciousness out. :)
