Marin French Petite Breakfast Fresh Brie

Petite Breakfast follows the same cheesemaking process but skips the aging room, making it a fresh brie without the white bloomy rind you traditionally see on this style of cheese. Sold fresh and young, it has a tangy flavor and a slightly springy texture, reminiscent of creamy cheese curds. It is great on its own or with a drizzle of honey, fruit jam or pepper jelly on a warm crusty baguette.

This little cheese has a big history! It started as a protein filled breakfast alternative for failed gold miners turned dock workers in the late 1800s. As the Gold Rush came to an end and the San Francisco Bay had a sudden increase in population, there were not enough eggs to meet the need for a hearty morning meal. Founder Jefferson Thompson addressed that need with this little breakfast cheese that is still true to its name but now enjoyed any time of the day!
