Have you ever wondered what the difference is between camembert and brie? In fact, the process of making them and the ingredients are in fact the same! The main difference is the region in France from which they come. It is also the size of the cheese. Brie is a big wheel and a camembert is a smaller wheel of cheese. You can learn more about these amazing cheeses in our workshops.
To do these cheeses justice on your cheese platter, it is also worth considering buying a brie knife which is designed to cut soft cheeses neatly without ruining their delicate soft centre.
