Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Who knew brie the cheese was made anywhere but in the Brie region of France? What’s more, who knew it was made in, of all places, Canada?

I sure didn’t, until I found some of this north-of-the-border fromage today. It was cheap, looked okay, and I figured I could guinea-pig myself with it — in the form of a light dinner tonight — before serving it to company.

It’s not half-bad. It’s called “Mon Desir Brie”, and although it doesn’t say exactly where in Canada it’s from, I’m guessing it’s a Quebecois original. I’d get it again, despite the admonitions of the gourmets.

Still, I wonder: Is the stigma of faux brie on the same level as that for sparkling wine masquerading as champagne?
