Camembert de Normandie AOP

Review 
€7.90
Tax included

One day, I tasted the Camembert de Normandie ...Did you think you knew the Camembert? But the Normandy Camembert exclusively made from raw milk. The real, the only, the authentic taste of France.

Quantity

The most famous cheese in Normandy, which has become a French symbol.

The origin of this famous flagship of French gastronomy is still attributed to the farmer Marie Harel, a resident of the village of Camembert. 

In 1791, she developed this cheese following the advice of a refractory priest, used to making Brie.

In 1890, engineer Ridel began large-scale manufacturing of the wooden box, invented by the merchant Jules Charrel.

This packaging allows these flowing cheeses to be stacked and transported.

At the same time, the development of the train made it possible to make this cheese known in Paris.

Wine suggestion: Sancerre… but also Cider, Apple juice.
