Brie de Meaux is a beloved French cheese that gets its name from the town it hails from – Meaux, in the Brie region of France. Legend has it that this rich, creamy cheese – made from raw cow’s milk and encased in a delicate, edible rind – dates all the way back to the 7th century, even known to be enjoyed by Emperor Charlemagne. 


Learn how this deliciously decadent delicacy is made in the below video from Food Insider, where journalist Claudia Romeo visits Seine-et-Marne’s Ferme des 30 Arpents – one of seven special farms that make Brie de Meaux (300 wheels a day!).
