Petite Ash Brie Cheese
Marin French Cheese Co.’s seasonal Petite Boo Ash-Coated Brie is a fun and festive balance of old-world technique and modern innovation. Our Petite Ash gets a Halloween makeover thanks to the inclusion of all-natural annatto. A thin layer of black vegetable ash and a striking orange paste make this delicious and decadent triple creme brie a special and spooky must-have.
Charred vegetable ash has been a traditional ingredient in cheese making for centuries, used to help preserve the cheese. It also adds an extra level of earthy flavor and seals in moisture for a rich and gooey texture. We are excited to offer Petite Boo as a way to honor the history of traditional cheesemaking while bringing in a modern sense of exploration and fun.
Size: 4 oz
Ingredients: Cultured Pasteurized Cow’s Milk, Pasteurized Cream, Salt, Vegetable Ash, Annatto, Microbial Enzymes.
Petite Boo is a rich and creamy triple creme brie in a fun and festive Halloween costume. Don't let the orange paste or ash-coating fool you, flavors will be mild and milky with a hint of earthy kick. The pairing opportunities are endless!
Sparkling Wine or Champagne pair well with any brie cheese, as the bubbles cut through the rich and milky paste for a clean and refreshing finish. With its mild earthiness, Petite Boo works well with an unoaked Chardonnay or a light Pinot Noir.
A mild cheese like Petite Boo calls for a light and refreshing beer. A crisp Pilsner or juicy Kolsch will cut through the cheese's richness without overpowering the flavor. You can also experiment with fruity or floral options like a Saison or a Sour, but don't let the cheese's flavor get lost in the shuffle.
Petite Boo is perfect for Halloween's spooky celebrations, so we encourage you to lean into the holiday theme. Family-friendly classics like pretzels, popcorn, and (dark) chocolate are perfect for the occasion.
Orange you glad you got your hands on some Petite Boo? This limited-production item is hard to come by, so we recommend that you enjoy it however you like it most. You can't go wrong with a crusty baguette and a drizzle of (hot?) honey!
Petite Boo's bright orange hue takes a baked brie dish to an entirely different level. For a cute & seasonal take on the classic dish, try out a Pumpkin Puff Pastry. The creamy & eye-catching Petite Boo is wrapped in puff pastry with pumpkin butter and then tied with twine to create an adorable little pumpkin with an oozing orange center.
