The Joy of Ripe Cheese:

Our friend, Alma, has been staying with us, hence the paucity of new posts. One of her house gifts was this utterly delectable Brie--one whole kilo. "Bought from Gilles [surname unknown], the fromage guy." She ordered it at the market, a friend of hers picked it up in Fontainebleu and she transported it all the way to Léran. This cheese is as good as it looks with a powdery skin like an elderly marquise. By its second night on the dining table, its blonde satiny insides were oozing like lava.
