Normandy’s oldest cheese

Coeurs de Neufchâtel

Neufchâtel-en-Bray is the home region of this cheese that goes back to the 7th century. It is a mold-ripened cow’s milk cheese with an edible bloomy rind, similar to Camembert but with a grainy texture and saltier taste. Generally aged for 8-10 weeks, it comes in many different shapes: hearts are popular.
