Brie peaked at an important time in American cheese history. Fatigued by the usual selection of cheddar, Swiss, and American, Yanks turned their gaze to Europe for inspiration. Brie was the first to step forward, becoming a bona fide food fad at receptions, cocktail parties, and other events, where the ease of spreading it on a cracker was an important factor. Maybe it also had something to do with its resemblance, at least as far as texture was concerned, to Velveeta. Though it was soon supplanted in our affections with other, more flavorful cheeses, brie is worth a revisit.

When frozen yogurt came around the first time, it was like hearing that the laws of the universe had been reversed—ice cream that you can gorge on because it’s fat-free! Now we file frozen yogurt, along with trickle-down economics, under “Lies They Told Us in the ’80s.” But frozen yogurt is back, draped in an even more virtuous disguise: Fro-yo is now the domain of Pinkberry, Red Mango, Yolato, Flurt, and a dozen or so imitators with equally infantile names. It isn’t just fat-free; it’s also supposedly good for your digestive system, the earth, and whatever else might need saving. The tart, “natural yogurt”–flavored soft-serve originated in South Korea and then made its way to New York via L.A. It all tastes the same. There’s one exception—Öko uses yogurt made by a Greek family in Queens, and the result is intensely tart, densely yogurty fro-yo. 152 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-398-3671; 137 First Avenue, 212-228-3321
