I am not a big fan of flavor-added cheeses; on the contrary, I’m generally quite against them. The flavorings tend to mask the nuances of the milk used in cheese production, which as far as I’m concerned is a crying shame! But as I discovered recently while doing some cheese shopping uptown, there’s an exception to every rule. On this particular day, I decided to swing by Ideal Cheese, one of my favorite shops. I saw that the owner, Michael, and his cheese counter manager, Stephen, were about to close for the evening, so I quickly asked them my favorite question: “What’s the cheese of the day?” Michael grinned, whipped out his knife, and gave me a slice of a soft cheese, saying, “It’s truffled Brie!”

Outwardly, I smiled; inwardly, I grimaced. Not only do I usually shy away from flavor-added cheeses, as I mentioned, but I will staunchly contend that “truffled” cheeses are often the worst. I say this because they’re almost always made with oils containing no real truffles, or with truffle peelings, which are really just scraps — the dregs of the truffle production process. But I bravely took the Brie slice, trusting that Michael would never steer me astray.

As soon as I smelled this cheese, I recognized the real deal. A creamy raw milk Brie de Meaux, it had been gently layered with fresh truffle pieces from La Maison de la Truffe, a small group of restaurants and markets in Paris whose name literally translates to “The House of Truffles.” This cheese comes in a nine-and-a-half-pound wheel that has been halved at its equator and is sold by its producer, Rouzaire, only when perfectly ripe. It is about three inches thick with a traditional white, bloomy rind, an incredibly smooth mouth feel, and a pleasant truffle crunch. The light salt balance complemented and counterbalanced its creaminess.

While Michael was giving me the low-down on this cheese, all I could think to myself was, “Paired with this Brie, a riesling from the Mosel, a rosé from Provence, or even a 10-year-old Champagne would really hit the spot.” It’s a cheese you would definitely want to set out at room temperature so the oils are free-flowing. For serving, it would pair wonderfully with a crusty French bread, some slightly overripe apricots, or lightly dipped into dark berry jam.

This is a true luxury cheese perfect for serving during the upcoming winter holidays. Yes, it’s priced at roughly $50 a pound, but for the quality of the ingredients it’s well worth it. Think about it this way: you could by a quarter-pound of this Brie de Meaux and share it with friends, bringing pure epicurean bliss to everyone for a mere $12.50! As a non-flavored-cheese guy who ended up buying some of this delectable truffle cheese for a few of my own very best friends, it’s a tradition I strongly suggest.

Certain brokers had the idea of creating the Maison de la Truffe, so that they could sell the truffles directly to the public, and with their experience, a shop was set up on the Place de la Madeleine back in 1932, which was an instant success.

Over the years it became one of the main places for gourmets, the wealthy and chefs to meet, so that they could purchase a variety of different truffles and truffle products and was going from strength to strength.

Then a chef called Guy Monier purchased the Maison de la Truffe in 1978 and decided to develop it further by transforming it into a luxury gourmet food store along with a tasting area, plus there is now the restaurant.

And today, this family run business has become a key location for enthusiasts and truffle gourmets from throughout the World that wish to discover the fine gem that has been highly prized for by nobility for hundreds of years.
