About Camembert (Le Mesnil-Mauger) French Cheese
Camembert is a moist, soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow's milk cheese. It is sometimes compared in look and taste to brie cheese, albeit with a slightly lower butterfat content than brie's typical 60% and 75% by weight.
Camembert was “reputedly” first produced in 1791 by a Normandie farmer called Marie Harel along with one Abbot Charles-Jean Bonvoust. Harel had worked as a cheesemaker at Beaumoncel manor and made Camembert cheeses in the regional way. “Their main contribution was to have initiated a dynasty of entrepreneurial cheesemakers who developed the production of Camembert cheese on a large scale, notably Cyrille Paynel, born in 1817, who created a cheese factory in the commune of Le Mesnil-Mauger in Calvados at France.”
