Petite Breakfast Brie Cheese
Petite Garlic & Pepper is the perfect marriage of French tradition and California vision. Inspired by the recipe for a beloved fresh cheese made in France’s Auvergne region, we’ve enhanced our award-winning Triple Crème Brie with garlic and cracked pepper for a decadently savory experience. The rich creamy texture and buttery flavor of the Triple Crème Brie bring balance to the earthy garlic and spicy pepper for flavor-forward wheels that are enticingly aromatic.

Marin French Cheese Co.’s Petite Garlic & Pepper is aromatic and flavor-forward, but that doesn't mean that it won't play well with others. You can enhance the cheese's savory quality by leaning into salty or pickled pairings, or complement with sweet honey or tart fruits and jams for balance. The earthy garlic and piquant pepper give this small format triple crème brie a comforting quality, making it the perfect ingredient for classic dishes like fondue, mashed potatoes, and other cheesy casseroles.
Since Petite Garlic & Pepper shines with a little bit of sweetness, our top choice of wine pairing is a dry Riesling. Very food-friendly, this aromatic varietal can stand up to the savory strength of garlic and pepper, complement it with a little stone fruit sweetness, and clear the palate with refreshing acidity.
As a cheese inspired by a unique French recipe, we love to serve Petite Garlic & Pepper with a French-style cider (Cidre). Light, fruity, and floral, these ciders can stand up to the rich cheese, but they never steal the show.
Petite Garlic & Pepper is a little cheese with a big flavor, wonderful for a curated cheeseboard. The strong savory flavors taste great alongside pickled items, so you can go classic with Cornichons or olives, or get creative with carrots and asparagus spears. Candied or roasted nuts will provide crunchy balance, as will tart fruit flavors like dried cranberries or cherry jam.
When our team gathered to try Petite Garlic & Pepper with a number of accompaniments, we were blown away by one of the simplest offerings: local honey. A crusty baguette, a thick slice of cheese, and a drizzle of honey are all you need for a true moment of authentic pleasure.
With the familiar flavors of garlic & pepper, the culinary options for this cheese are endless. Lean into warm and comforting dishes like raclette, baked and scalloped potatoes, or an elevated grilled cheese. If you're really particular to pepper, we recommend using Petite Garlic & Pepper in place of the truffled cheese in this Polenta Canape recipe.
