French colonization introduced Brie to Canada somewhere in the early 17th century. However, stories of this cheese’s elegant perfection causing a fervent, persistent desire, beyond its small-town of origin, were well drawn since the 8th century account of Charlemangne’s town-crippling, annual Brie export order.
The Eiffel Tower, Paris’s tallest structure and the most visited paid monument in the world, patently expresses “The Queen of Cheese’s” prized taste, fully realized in this creamy, luscious Canadian Brie.
Within the velvety white, edible rind, Eiffel Tower Canadian Brie is a double cream made from pasteurized cow’s milk with a minimum butterfat content of 60%. The extra cream and higher moisture content deliver an interior so smooth and buttery, it’s clear why Brie is destined to seduce– and why, from the earliest Canadians onward, there has been a mission to perfect the production of Brie outside France.
