752 - Brie De Nangis

Brie De Nangis

The straw coloured interior has a milky, sweet flavour when young which develops a luscious, mushroom flavour with age

Brie de Nangis is slightly stronger than the better known, and bigger, Brie de Meaux and takes its name from Nangis, the town where it was first produced for consumption by the locals. However, its production stopped completely during the Second World War and didn't start again until revived by Robert Rouzaire some 80 years later after extensive research into how it was originally made. The Fromagerie Rouzire now make the cheese all year round in the region of Saine-et-Marne at the heart of Brie country.

To make the cheese, milk is collected every day from the North east of the Seine-et-Marne region and this is seen as the first stage towards a quality product. Traditional animal rennet is used to coagulate the milk and the curds are milled specifically to ensure consistency of size. The day after the curds are milled, they are put into moulds and salted. After several days of drying, the cheeses are taken to the cellars which are regulated to have a temperature between 5 and 6 degrees. They are turned at least once a week for the duration of their affinage of 4-8 weeks.

Brie de nangis has a white, bloomy rind which can develop red and brown patches of ripening moulds. It has a strong, earthy flavour and a beautiful, very soft texure
