Reminiscent of barren fields covered in snow, the bloomy rind of Camembert is unmistakeable. Equal in beauty, the pearly interior is smooth, soft and holds its consistency throughout. Kissed with earthy and sweet tones, this white mold cheese captivates with its slight hints of caramelized butter and foraged mushrooms. The aftertaste is rounded and somewhat tangy, with a pleasant and soft finish.
Sat beside walnuts, white wine or dressed in honey and plum chutney, Camembert will find a way to complement them all. As a starter or dessert, baked Camembert offers rich dipping for fruit, vegetables or biscuits. Serve Camembert at room temperature by removing it from refrigeration at least half an hour before serving.
