What is Back Brie?
Traditionally, brie is made from cow's milk. For this recipe we use vegan, self-fermented cashew brie. You can make it yourself at home with a little time and patience. In addition to cashews, you will need a culture of lactic acid bacteria and a culture of noble mold. You can find all the necessary accessories in the fairment store. If you don't have time to prepare the cheese, you can find vegan cashew cheese in some well-stocked supermarkets. But we recommend you to make it yourself and bake it according to our recipes 🙂
How is Brie different from Camembert?
The noble mold varieties Brie and Camembert are very similar in type. Do you know the differences? One eponymous difference is the origin of the cheeses. Brie originally comes from the small town of Meaux in the Brie region. Camembert recipes, on the other hand, come from the small village of Camembert in Normandy. Industrially produced, however, many supermarket products no longer come from there.
Both cheese recipes use the noble fungus "Penicillium camemberti". It forms the typical white layer of mold. The interior of Brie is usually soft and creamy, the taste aromatic and slightly acidic. Camembert has a firmer structure and may even develop holes as it matures. It tastes slightly sharper and becomes stronger with aging.
You see: there are differences. Would you rather bake with cashew camembert than cashew brie for this delicious fruity baked brie, it works just as well!
