Details

One of the most iconic French cheeses as it has been made in the village of Camembert since the mid-1500s. The trademark cheese-shaped wooden box appeared in 1880, developed for the railroads, which carried Camembert to Parisian elite. A true ripe Camembert should be soft, bulgy with mushroomy and buttery aroma and taste. Works best with its regional fellows Cider and Calvados.
