Haystack Mountain Camembert is a surface-ripened bloomy-rind cheese designed after the traditional cow's milk cheese from Normandy in northern France. As it ripens from the outside in, the paste grows creamier, oozy and earthier with age. Serve the cheese with spiced pecans, dried fruits, oil-cured olives and savoury crackers. Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre or other fruity white wines make a great match with Camembert.
