Pont-l'Évêque

Région : Normandie

First made by monks, Pont-l’Évêque is a soft cheese with a washed or brushed rind on which a hint of flower emerges during ripening. Its whitish-orangey rind houses a supple, ivory-to-straw-yellow coloured paste with creamy and barnyard aromas. Its shape dates back to the 17th-century, when an effort was made to distinguish it from other cheese from Pays d’Auge, who all share a common ancestor in Angelot. It comes in 4 forms: the Grand Pont-l'Évêque, the Pont-l'Évêque, the Demi Pont-l'Évêque and the Petit Pont l’Evêque. It has held Protected Designation of Origin status since 1996.
