British Brie: Many people are surprised when they learn that Brie and Camembert are produced in the UK, believing that these cheeses can only be made in France. In fact both are generic names referring to a recipe. By contrast "Brie de Meaux" and "Camembert de Normandie" are both protected names referring to specific recipes which may only be made in their respective regions. In the UK Brie and Camembert are made by two companies who are of a scale to be able to supply all of the major retailers. These are Cornish Country Larder, based near Newquay and Lubborn Cheese based in Somerset. Both make both cows milk and goats milk versions whilst Lubborn also have a specialist Brie made exclusively from Channel Islands milk (from Jersey and Guernsey breed cows). The cheeses tend to be much creamier versions than the French make, to cater for the British palette.
