I am trying to expand my cheese palette, which is going ok so far now that I am learning what cheeses to pair with what and so forth!. I have a question about brie cheese, though, are you supposed to eat the rind or not? I know you are supposed to heat it and then cut it open, but I am confused about the rind.

You can eat the rind yes. You don't have to cook it either, it's great in sandwiches, or with crackers, especially paired with redcurrant or cranberry jelly to cut through the richness.

As above BUT make sure it's soft. The rind is optional [I don’t like it] but it should be well ripe to be at it's best.
