The Marin French Cheese Company has been making cheese at its ranch just outside of Petaluma since 1865, and is known as the oldest continually operating creamery in the U.S. Originally known for its mild “breakfast cheese,” which is still produced today, the company now makes a range of classic French-style cheeses using Jersey, Holstein and Guernsey milk from neighboring family farms, and traditional cheesemaking practices.
Truffle Brie begins with Jersey-Holstein milk, which provides a rich, creamy base for the distinctive earthy aroma of Italian black truffles. Pair this elegant, decadent cheese with a glass of sparkling wine.
A 4-ounce "petite" version of this cheese is also available.
