Le Conquérant Camembert – Will Studd


Le Conquérant Camembert is a close cousin of Camembert de Normandie. Its strong aromatic hints of wet straw, brassica and apples are a reminder of why this authentic cheese has become a proud symbol of French cheese-making skills. Handmade for Will in the Pays d’Auge region of Normandy, its secret lies in the use of specially selected cultures, moulds and yeasts and, of course, rich Normandy milk. The traditional wooden poplar box and wax-paper wrap create a microclimate that encourages the chalky heart of a young cheese to slowly break down over three to four weeks, eventually becoming deliciously soft and fudgy by the use-by date.

A little history about Camembert

Authentic Camembert de Normandie is one of the most famous cheeses in the world. Made with raw milk, it is produced under strict AOC rules. Will Studd has worked with the producers of this cheese to develop Le Conquérant Camembert a pasteurised milk version for the Australian market. Its special blend of cheesemaking cultures produce flavours and aromas that come very close to its famous cousin with distinct hints of cauliflower, wet straw & truffle and a rich fudgy texture when ripe. A must with dry cider. Watch this great video to learn more.
