I agree it is SO good and has a smooth buttery texture when it has been sitting out. The idea of leaving it out completely floored me and I was against it but my other half (from France) would recommend leaving cheeses out for a couple days before eating. EEK! Paranoia's worst nightmare! Cheese
Well I ate it and lived to tell and it was actually quite good so I'm not the same as I used to be. Brie is my favorite hands down. Goat cheese is good but brie gets my favorite cheese award.
