Born centuries ago in Normandy, one of France’s most fertile regions, authentic Camembert is still exclusively produced there. The Norman dairy farms, covered with delicious grass for cows to graze upon, are peppered with apple trees that protect the rich soil. In fact, some people claim to be able to taste a hint of apple beneath the creamy suppleness of fresh Camembert. A similar cheese to brie, Camembert is formed into smaller wheels and may have a slightly more robust flavor than its larger cousin. Firm when chilled or runny at room temperature, there are many ways to enjoy this wonderful cheese– with bread, fruit, or nuts. Best when eaten at room temperature.
