Expert Tips

To easily cut Brie, freeze it for 10 minutes, and then use a sharp thin knife.

Brie, lettuce and tomato is a common quick-lunch sandwich combination in Paris. Prepare these sandwiches with French baguettes, just as they do in France. Serve them with grated carrots or sliced beets in vinaigrette and a glass of red wine.

Missing the original B from the classic BLT – bacon? Go ahead and add it to the sandwich; bacon goes well with Brie.
