CAMEMBERT

I would suggest that you read the full story, as the below is only the intro, so please do yourself a favor and read and learn more about Camembert and other French Cheese

Marie Harel created the original Camembert cheese from raw milk in Normandy, France in 1791. Today, however, a very small percentage of producers make cheese from raw milk with the same process as Marie Harel would have used. Those who produce cheese using Marie Harel’s method can legally call their cheese Camembert Normandie under the AOC guidelines. However, the production of Camembert cheese has now transcended the AOC designation. Very good varieties of Camembert cheese made from pasteurized milk can be found in Normandy today. The best of them is the Camembert Le Châtelain.

Camembert is a moist, soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow's milk cheese. It was first made in the late 18th century at Camembert, Normandy, in northern France. It is similar to Brie, which is native to the Brie region of France.

  • Sunflower oil for deep frying
  • Seasoning: You can use your own imagination, but salt, pepper and some green leafy herbs like ½ to 1 tsp of thyme and origanum should work well.
