Isigny French Camembert 150g

At Isigny Sainte-Mère, milk is revered as white gold, as it is this exceptional raw material that enables the cooperative to produce a Camembert cheese that is truly remarkable. As the cheese ripens, it takes on a beautiful color and emits a heady aroma that is irresistible. In short, it develops a unique character that sets it apart from all others.

The milk used in the cooperative’s Camemberts is sourced from local farms that are part of the Isigny terroir, and it contains a naturally occurring lactic bacterial flora that is unique to this region. This distinct flavor profile is present in every Camembert that Isigny Sainte-Mère produces, making it easily identifiable by experts.

The invention of Camembert cheese is attributed to Marie Harel, a cheesemaker who lived near the village of Camembert during the early years of the French Revolution. Initially, it was made by dairy producers who turned to cheesemaking, but it quickly gained a reputation for excellence in Normandy and beyond during the late 19th century. Today, Camembert remains both a historic and gastronomic monument, and Isigny Sainte-Mère’s version is a true standout.
