Most people abroad know Camembert, Brie and Bleu. Not only do they get pale local immitations that deliver no texture nor flavour but they are also missing on many other varieties. The secret is: eat less cheese (forget your 500 grams Cheddar block that tastes like rubber) but chose it better. It is going to be slightly more expensive if you buy it at the same frequency but totally worth it. Therefore it is better for your love handles and better for your palate, win win. Most Anglo-Saxons believe Camembert and Brie have the same taste because they never had the original stuff. Again go to your delicatessen (add Coulommiers to your list of white cheese so to add confusion :-) Camembert must be from Camembert or broader Normandy area, nowhere else. Brie must come from the city of Meaux and this is how it rules in France, every city and region as its cheese. You are in Northern France, try Vieux Lille, Maroilles, Mimolette and Boulette d'Avesnes. Almost every city and even villages has ...more
