If you love cheeses like brie, chances are you will fall in love with its cousin Brillat-Savarin. This is a triple-cream cheese with around 75% butterfat that has a light texture with rich flavor. Like brie, it is delightful on a baguette, but it really shines with a glass of prosecco or champagne.
