Les Calendos

Les Calendos is a surface-ripened cheese made in the style of Brie/Camembert from pasteurized cow's milk and cream. It has a supple, smooth, velvety and homogenous creamy yellow paste that is covered with a beautiful white rind. Since the last twenty years, the cheese has been made in 1 kg wheels, so that it ripens less quickly and retains more of the fuller flavour and distinct aroma.
