A Word on the Brie Rind

The rind of the brie is the outer layer of cheese that has come into contact with the mold and is generally a bit harder than the cheese itself. However, it is edible. Some people like the rind of the cheese while others do not. Serving the cheese warm with the cranberries, walnuts, and honey allows the guests to scoop out the parts they like to eat.
