My favorite cheese in the entire world: Brunet

I love, love, love, love, love cheese.  I crave it.  I dream about it.  And I savor every bite of my favorite cheeses like Cambozola and Humboldt Fog.  I have wonderful friends who, for my birthday, brought me a trio of cheeses to enjoy, along with some champagne (I told you they were wonderful).  One of the cheeses was Brunet, a luxurious, creamy cheese with a subtle tang, which made me weak in the knees.  It’s made in Italy with goat milk from goats with dark hair, hence the name Brunet.  Unlike most cheeses with a rind, Brunet has a very soft, very thin rind that just melts into the cheese, going unnoticed.  I’ve only been able to find it at Whole Foods.  Grab yourself a hunk of Brunet (and make sure it comes to room temperature) and a bottle of Pinot Grigio and enjoy the best cheese in the world.
