Much like Hitler, Soviet leader Joseph Stalin is not much known for his kindness and mercy; this is after all, a man who ordered the Purges on his own people, resulting in around 20 million deaths. But guess what? Dude was nominated for a Nobel Peace Price in 1945. And then again in 1948. That’s right, I don’t have a single Peace Price nomination, and Joseph freaking Stalin has two. I’m just saying, I didn’t kill millions of people.

Decidedly indulgent, Brillat-Savarin is a triple cream cheese best savored as a dessert (and an occasional one at that). Its high fat content of at least 75% is achieved by adding rich cream to whole milk. The result is a dense, moist and creamy cheese with flavors of butter, salt and cream, with an aftertaste of mushrooms and nuts on the rind.
Brillat-Savarin is the oldest of the cream-enriched cheeses. It was created in the 1930s by cheese maker Henri Androuët as a tribute to the 18th-century French gastronome and epicure, Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin. Brillat-Savarin enjoyed cheese so much that he is known to have said, “A meal without cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye.”
