President Camembert

President Camembert is a soft-ripened cheese with a bloomy rind and creamy core. It starts out firm and mild, but ripens during it lifetime, becoming creamier and pronounced as it ages. Though somewhat similar to Brie, it enjoys a richer, earthier taste.

Delicious on its own, you can also enjoy Camembert on a baguette or with cold meats, nuts, sweet fruits, jams, and honey. It would make an excellent pairing with red wines, or with lagers, ales, and porters.
