Description:

Neufchâtel is a French cheese dating back to the 6th century, named after a town of the same name, in Normandy. Some argue that Neufchâtel is the oldest known cheese in France. The cheese is made in many forms, shapes and sizes but the best known are the heart shaped versions we carry. Supposedly when the hundred war was going on, the French women used to make these for the English soldiers they fancied to show they had the hots for them!

Producer: Villiers

The taste and texture are similar to camembert: rich, slightly nutty and creamy. As they mature the rind becomes drier, sometimes cracking when very mature, when the taste becomes quite strong, with a pronounced tang.
