So, what is camembert cheese?

Camembert cheese is a soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow's milk cheese with a bloomy rind. Originating from Normandy, France, Camembert is made by curdling milk with rennet and allowing it to coagulate before being drained and molded into its iconic round shape. It's then aged for a few weeks until the white rind develops, which gives it a distinctive earthy flavor and slightly tangy aroma. With a rich, buttery texture and a nutty taste that intensifies as it ages, Camembert is a versatile cheese that can be enjoyed on its own or used in a wide range of dishes, from sandwiches and salads to sauces and soups.
