Pave d'Auge

Pavé d'Auge is a term or name that depicts square, flat, washed-rind cheeses made in the north of Auge area in France. It is an old version of the Pont-L'Evêque.

It is a supple and light cheese with cloudier orange color, bouncy texture with small holes called as 'eyes' and smooth, rich, buttery taste with a hint of sweet pastures.

Though the cheese is a favorite of many foodies because it is aged between 2 to 4 months, mini versions that are aged for 1 month are also available in the markets now a days!
