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.
