A whopping eight new awards are joining the trophy case of Marin French Cheese Co. after these California State Fair winsWe have been crafting our camembert-style cheeses for over 120 years and our unique Petite Breakfast even longer!” Bonnie added. “Petite Breakfast is our flagship product and a unique cheese to us. It starts with the same cheesemaking process as our other brie-style cheeses. The different part of this delicious cheese is it skips the aging room, making it a fresh brie without the white bloomy rind of a traditional aged brie–not very common across the brie category.”

At the event, the judges had tasting notes that praised balance, delicious flavor, and divine texture.

“Our mission is creating a balance of ‘Old Meets New World,’ and these winnings are a great example of how both our classics and innovative cheeses showcase our approach to quality cheesemaking,” Bonnie noted.

We can’t wait to see what Marin French does next!
