“Moulé à la louche”
Brillat-Savarin, also known as ‘Excelsior’, was invented by Henri Androuet in the 1930s to pay tribute to the famous gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin. For this triple cream cheese, the producers add extra cream to reach 75% of fat (on dry matter). Now, this fact may startle you but we guarantee it tastes so heavenly that you won’t even think of the numbers on a scale. Made from pasteurized cow milk, young IGP Brillat-Savarin has a milky aroma, slightly salty with sour lemon hints. Aged, the smooth and creamy cheese tends to be butterier and get some brioche notes. Paired with fresh cucumber or red radish finely sliced creates a refreshing appetizer.

the interior is really creamy and the rind has a strong flavor. perfect for crispy stuff like crackers, pretzels and baguettes.
Vicky Fung –
One of more favourite cheese at this shop. Had it with hand made baguette. Flavour is similar with brie but with stronger and more salty taste. Recommend!
Mary Hui –

This is one of my favourite cheese from the Cheese Club selection. Delightfully creamy, like a brie but fresher, and with a good mouth feel. Eat it on a slice of freshly-baked sourdough with salmon or trout roe, or with sundried tomatoes. So good!
Yuki Ngay (verified owner) –
My favourite cheese. It is super creamy and I love to eat these with dates and a cracker.

Hands down the best value Brillat-Savarin in HK. Smooth and milky with balanced creaminess on the palate. Structure holds up well to spread on crackers. Excellent on its own or with Champagne (especially Blanc de Noirs)
