Le Conquerant Camembert 150g
You can not find a Camembert of this caliber in a store near you. Forget the Camembert you've tried from a supermarket... This is why we have selected it for you, so you get to taste what a good Camembert really tastes like and why it is world famous.
This is a Camembert selected by Will Studd and its taste will leave you amazed. It's smooth, it has bite, it has a wonderful texture. On its own, with wine, or just on bread, it'll taste amazing.
A Camembert like this one, will be the star of your cheese platter, unless you also get our Comte, and it'll be a tough one.
A good Comte and a good Camembert will really make a cheese platter and no guest will leave without loving one or the other. This is ultimately why all cheese platters in France have a camembert AND a comte.
Camembert de Normandie is only produced under strict AOC regulations from unpasteurised milk, and so regrettably isn’t permitted in Australia due to strict food regulations.
Le Conquerant is a close cousin and its strong aromatic hints of wet straw, brassica and apples is a reminder of how the authentic cheese has become a proud symbol of French cheesemaking skills.
Handmade for Will in the Pays d’Auge region of Normandy, its secret lies in the use of traditional cultures, moulds and yeasts, and of course rich Normandy milk.
The popular box and wax paper wrap create a microclimate that encourages the chalky heart of a young cheese to slowly break down over three to four weeks, eventually becoming deliciously soft and fudgy by the use by date.
