“Give me a good sharp knife and a good sharp cheese and I’m a happy man.”
George R.R. Martin

No holiday party is complete without an appetizer of brie cheese. Because this cheese is mild and versatile, it's the perfect choice for holiday cheese platters and pairs well with acidic dressings, like this cranberry chutney recipe below. To compliment the richness of this cheese, pair it with a creamy, subtly oaked Chardonnay and you will have a foolproof hors d'oeuvre to serve!

My kids always ask if they can eat the white rind of Brie cheese and the answer is yes, the rind is edible and is a matter of preference. While some people enjoy the earthy and nutty flavor it gives to the cheese, others, like my kids, prefer the creamy insides instead. While Brie cheese is allowed on the SCD diet (the Specific Carboyhyrate Diet) it is advised to eat it in moderation.
