This cheese is absolutely divine. Camembert Calvados is made by a superior Camembert de Normandie AOC having its rind gently scraped off and then it is dipped in Calvados – the famous French Apple Brandy – and a layer of breadcrumbs which then seals the flavour in.
The inside of the cheese is plump and golden yellow and the rind is creamy white. This Camembert is ”AOC Normandy” labeled, which ensures you are buying a cheese of premium quality.
Coulommier has been described as the mother of all Bries. However this description is not correct in as much as it is a Brie, but more that it is the ancestor of all Brie cheeses – it is the original Brie!
It is smaller and thicker than most Bries and has a more buttery colour and taste with a hint of almonds. It is made in the Brie region by Jacques Hennart. This comes as a wrapped 500g circular whole cheese in a wooden case.
