Triple Crème Brie continues to best the European cheese makers
Marin French Cheese Company, America’s oldest continuously operating cheese producer strikes gold at the international World Cheese Awards in Birmingham, UK. . 201 judges from 19 different countries judged 2,629 cheeses from 29 countries. Marin French earned 3 Gold medals along with 10 other Silver and Bronze awards. This notable success comes on the heels of winning 12 awards at the American Cheese Society competition held in August.
We tasted several varieties and found them beautifully balanced and in fine condition. The only discernable difference between these and their European cousins was in the flavor department. While excellent, they were by and large milder. Definitely worth a try: American cheeses are improving every year.
