Coeur de Neufchâtel

This cheese comes from Neufchatel in the "Pays de Bray" which is situated in northern Normandie. It is a member of the AOC family, and is made in several different shapes. Surprisingly, one of its shape is a heart, ideal for Valentine’s Day ! A legend tells that in the 100 Years War, the young maidens of Neufchatel-en-Bray offered this cheese to their gallant English conquerors. To the delight of the priests, they ate the cheese and thought they were in heaven, as the shape reminded them of angels wings. The taste is marked but delicate. Eaten with crusty bread and a strong red wine, this cheese is a gourmet delight. Its texture and taste is similar to its well known-cousin, Camembert. The dry rind is velvety white, its gold pate is firm but supple.
