We have been making our flagship Petite Breakfast Brie at Marin French Cheese Co. since 1865, contributing to our title as the country's oldest cheese company. For over 155 years this cheese has not only filled a need for healthy breakfast protein, but continues to be a favorite of both locals and visitors alike. Petite Breakfast follows the same cheesemaking process as our other brie style cheeses, but skips the aging room, making it a fresh brie without the white bloomy rind you traditionally see on this style of cheese. Sold fresh and young, it has a tangy flavor and a slightly springy texture, reminiscent of creamy cheese curds. Petite Breakfast Brie is the little cheese with the big history. It started as a protein filled breakfast alternative for failed gold miners turned dock workers in the late 1800s. As the Gold Rush came to an end and the San Francisco Bay had a sudden increase in population, there were not enough eggs to meet the need for a hearty morning meal for laborers to start their day. Our founder, Jefferson Thompson saw the need and created a breakfast cheese that is still true to its name but is now enjoyed any time of day!
