The Different Types Of Brie Cheese

The main difference between varieties is related to fat content and the cheese's texture. Double-cream brie is the most common, and is usually made with 60 to 75% milkfat. Triple-cream combines cream to the cheese for a more soft, richer texture. Triple-cream cheese contains more than 75% butterfat and is by far the creamiest. The extra cream brie cheeses have a delicious, buttery flavour than compared to regular brie cheese.

Gourmet Variations

As good as brie is on its own, you can flavour the cheese a number of ways to add little spice, sweetness or a herbal twist to your party plate:

  • Add sweetness: a drizzle or side of sweet tasting fig or raspberry jam, a dollop of Cherry preserves, or apricot chutney all make for a delicious treat.

  • Add herbs: many people love a touch of sweetness, but if you prefer savoury, try a drizzle of olive oil with herbs like basil, chives, rosemary, or thyme. Sprinkle them over the cheese, add them into a spread, or even use them in a marinade before serving.

  • Add honey glaze: drizzling honey over brie enhances its creamy flavour with a touch of sweetness.

  • Add nuts: Nuts like walnuts, pecans, and almonds add a nice crunch and earthy flavor to brie. They also provide a contrasting texture.

  • Shhh... add wine: of course, brie pairs well with a variety of wines, including white wines like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Champagne. The acidity of the wine cuts through the richness of the cheese.

This recipe is one of my absolute favourite ways to share a gourmet cheese dish for entertaining, and it is always a huge hit. The cherries add a little something different with a subtle sweet flavour that marries so well with the spice of the chili. Let's get baking!


  • 1 wheel of Camembert brie cheese

  • 1/2 cup cherries, fresh or frozen

  • 2-3 Cayenne chili capsicums, finely chopped

  • 1/3 cup water, filtered

  • 1 tbsp corn starch

  • 1 tsp stevia granules or 2 tsp maple syrup

  • 1 tsp ginger, minced or fresh

  • 1 tsp garlic mince, fine

  • 1 pinch salt & pepper to taste


In a sauce pan, add the cherries, sweetener, chili, sweetener, garlic and ginger. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Let simmer, stirring constantly until the cherries begin to breakdown. Add more water (just enough to cover) as needed to aid this process.

When the cherry mixture has formed a jam-like texture, scoop a spoonful or two into a side dish and whisk to combine with the corn starch. Add the mixture back to the pan and simmer until the starch mix begins to thicken. Pull off the heat to let cool while you prepare the cheese.


In a small baking dish, add the Camembert cheese wheel and bake at 180c for 8-10 minutes. You can tell the insides have melted by lightly pressing the top. If it feels firm, it may need a few minutes longer. If it feels soft inside, the cheese is ready. To serve, present right in the dish with generous drizzle the cherry chili sauce over top. Best served with a dry, crisp bread or gourmet biscuits.


In a small baking dish, add the Camembert cheese wheel to the centre. Pour a good portion of the cherry chili sauce over top, and bake at 180c for 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye on the top as some ovens burn hotter than others.

Batch Cook & Meal Prep

Yes, you can easily meal prep the chili sauce and store it in a sealed jar if kept in the fridge. Use a proper jam or preserves jar that is sterile and has an air-tight lid for freshness. Will keep for up to 4 weeks and can be used as a dipping sauce for spring rolls and hors d'oeuvres, or as a sweet and spicy drizzle wherever you want a little sweet and spice.
