Le Rustique Camembert Cheese (Individual 200g)



Le Rustique Camembert is made in Normandy, home of Camembert, using milk from cows which graze on the lush green pastures. It therefore owes its authentic flavour to the quality of its ingredients and the traditional savoir-faire in its making.

Camembert Rustique cheese is a pasteurised French Camembert cheese with a rich, deep and satisfying flavour. A strong soft cheese, it made from the milk of cows that graze on the lush grass of Normandy. The cheese is delectable and suitably oozy when ripe. Le Rustique is recognizable for its wooden packaging and its red gingham cloth branding. This was added to the brand by chance when a paper broker, hampered by an overstock of gingham cloth, suggested that they should use it to place the cheese in.

Le Rustique Camembert Cheese is moreish. Cheese lovers will be impressed by the way this wonderfully ripe cheese collapses into a gorgeous gooey mess when sliced. The cheese impressed with its pleasant musty aroma and deep flavour profile. Its bitter tanginess was complemented by the milky, farmy flavours that developed in the mouth for a lingering finish.

The story began in 1975, driven by the passion of one man, Jean Verrier. That was the year he developed the recipe that would see Le Rustique go way beyond the borders of Normandy: Camembert Le Rustique. In conclusion their cheese-makers still have the same desire to create cheeses with a unique flavour.
