FAQs about Camembert
Camembert and Brie are interchangeable in many recipes, and the two types of cheeses are often confused. Although similar, they are not the same cheese.
Both Camembert and Brie were first created in northern France. They both come from cow's milk and include soft and bloomy rinds. Cheesemakers also use similar techniques to make Brie and Camembert.
However, cheesemakers add cream to Brie, giving Brie a creamier texture and a higher milk fat percentage than Camembert. Camembert's milk fat percentage is 45%, while Brie's percentage is 60%. Additionally, a lactic starter is only introduced once for Brie, while it is added five times throughout the Camembert production process.
If you compare the Brie and Camembert's tastes, you'll find that brie tastes milder and has a creamy, buttery flavor. Camembert often has a more intense flavor. Brie is a bit runnier than the denser Camembert, although their textures are similar.
You can eat the rind of Camembert. In fact, the rind is considered a delicacy. Expect the rind to taste sweet and pillowy soft, providing a great complement to the cheese itself.
The rind of Camembert gives this cheese its soft texture; the live rind breaks down the Camembert's fats and proteins. This breakdown leads to a creamy or runny texture that develops over time in the cheese. The characteristic bloomy rind adds flavor and texture to the cheese when you eat the components together.
Camembert makes a great addition to a cheeseboard. Serve Camembert at room temperature. If you're adding Camembert to your cheeseboard, you might accompany it with some baguette slices, crackers, fruits, and nuts.
Camembert also bakes well. You can either bake it wrapped in pastry or without the pastry. Expect a slightly stronger flavor compared to brie when baked.
You can also melt chunks or slices of Camembert to create various dishes, such as the following:
- Grilled-cheese sandwiches.
If a recipe calls for Brie, but you have Camembert, you can also use Camembert interchangeably. Camembert works well for any recipe that requires a soft, bloomy cheese that has good melting properties.
