Ocean Brie from Dellendale Creamery in gorgeous Denmark (also home to our favourite chocolate maker - Dark Side Chocolates, but that is another story).

Bries have inspired entire volumes of discussion and praise over the years, so I will not repeat what is already well known. So what is different about the Ocean Brie?

Our example was a little on the young side, not yet fully pasted, but still an excellent cheese, and showing immense promise for full maturity.

It was mild at the time we opened ours, but there was enough in that to foreshadow the rich complexities that we would expect from a high-end brie. No trace of the ammonia tones that some bries carry - even when young, this was rich and nutty, with lovely mushroom earth tones. The rind was was smooth and fine as you could hope for, with no bitterness at all.

Overall, one to watch out for, and I would seek it out over the well established King Island bries.

Dellendale cheeses are available widely across the South West of WA, including many Perth retailers.

  1. It was absolutely delicious with the sparkling white non alcoholic wine, and the golden figs from our tree.

  2. You put Wallace and Gromit to shame with your cheesy posts, Rob. :-)

  3. It should also be noted that Rob Masters means Denmark, the south west country town in Western Australia, not the country with fine cheeses of its own.
