Camembert de Normandie AOC
The real thing!
Camembert de Normandie is one of the crown jewels of French gastronomy. Be careful not to confuse this cheese with a Camembert that has simply been made in Normandy!
This cheese is hand-landled and matured for at least three weeks. The rind is white and downy and sometimes shows red-orange spots; the paste is ivory to light yellow and can have a white chalky center; when the cheese is fully matured all the way through, the paste becomes smooth, soft and shiny, and very small holes appear.
