Due to its size, Coulommiers cheese is called Brie’s « younger brother ». Indeed, Brie wheels would easily break during transportation, and some cheese makers decided on making smaller cheese while following the same production process. The young wife of Louis XV, Marie Leczinska (1703-1768), whose cunning mind commanded a fine taste in food, used Coulommiers to cook her aristocratic Bouchées à la Reine. For many decades Coulommiers paste was also used to make pies.
Coulommiers is best enjoyed at the end of the meal, with a slice of cereal bread.
