Gourmet treats in Melun
Famous for its Brie and honey
With its AOP (protected designation of origin) cheese, Melun has an extraordinary ambassador. Made from unpasteurised cow's milk for centuries, Brie de Melun is without doubt the forefather of all Brie cheeses. Aged for 5 weeks, it is full of flavour and presents a slightly salty taste. For the past several years, Melun has emerged as a producer of honey. Indeed, the town has set up a hive in its municipal greenhouses, where it invites school children to see the bees at work and also harvests the fruit of their labour. Taste and buy the honey from the Tourist Office!
