Pont l'Eveque Cheese Making Recipe

Pont l'Eveque is perhaps the oldest of the Norman cheeses. It is a beautiful mix of bloomy rind and washed rind, falling right between Camembert and Livarot.

Once you cut into it, you will find the edges have broken down more than the center, giving you a contrasting flavor of that sweet gooiness of Camembert near the edges and a firmer and brighter acid as you approach the center.

This is a great flavor combo in the mouth which allows you to focus on the milky goodness of this amazing cheese.
