I think I prefer camembert though dont quite know the difference!
Perhaps camembert is a bit sweeter and runnier -very yummy even in cooking.
However due to cholesterol problems, I don't eat it as often as I would like as it has one of the highest fat content of cheeses.
I buy generally camembert but often if for cooking and brie is on special I will buy brie.
The French ones are so delightful but ridiculously expensive - also the Margaret River W. Australian camembert is delightful.
Brie. I would always take it over Camembert for some reason. I never liked Camembert from the very first try. I can eat it if it is on offer but for myself I always have Brie. Also brands are important because cheap B or C are gross. South Cape Double Brie . . .Mmmmmmm.
Found -> Smell and taste: Brie has a light, buttery scent and flavor with a salty finish. Camembert can be on the funkier side and smell earthy and barnyard-y like mushrooms or hay, with an intensely savory, umami flavor. Taken from:- http://www.popsugar.com/food/Brie-vs-Camembert-32347810
I like them both, and if they were both placed in front of me, I couldn't tell you which is which. I don't have it very often, for no real reason, but they are absolutely delicious !! I have it more during Christmas and New Year when there are more parties and social engagements.
I love both these cheeses, but I also wouldn't win a blindfold test! I also love Blue vain, which a lot of people detest, mainly because of the smell, but it's good in some pasta dishes! I just eat a slice on it's own, every now & then while I'm cooking the dinner!
I love both of these cheese treasures!!! I like some of the Australian brands which are now available, such as South Cape, but having allergies I eat these treats extremely rarely now! I am able to tolerate matured(harder texture) cheeses, but not the fresh ones which are so much like eating Cream.I never eat cream anymore, and eggs are a huge no-no, so please, everyone, enjoy all these delicious things for me!!!
I was always so ill from childhood,and it was finally discovered when I was 23, that many of the foods I was eating were the reason why!! I have found now after many long years of changed diet, and introducing TINY TEENSIE amounts of the 'bad' foods, I can occasionally enjoy a taste without getting too sick. Oh!!! How I make the most of this!! So when Brie is the one on offer, I love it;and when Camembert is the one, I love IT just as much!
