Camembert de Portneuf

Camembert de Portneuf is a soft, bloomy rind cheese made in the style of Camembert from pasteurized cow's milk and cream. It has a thin, delicate rind with a creamy, supple and melting paste complemented by a fragrant, distinctive flavour. The cheese has been a 3rd prize winner at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair 2006. Pair a Bordeaux (red) or Blonde Ale to go with the creaminess of the cheese.
