My eldest son appeared with a cheese box last night...and great a French cheese was in there.
Pont-l'Évêque is an uncooked, unpressed cow's-milk cheese, square in shape usually at around 10cm square and around 3cm high, weighing 400g. The central pâte is soft, creamy pale yellow in colour with a smooth, fine texture and has a pungent aroma. This is surrounded by a washed rind that is white with a gentle orange-brown coloration. The whole is soft when pressed but lacks elasticity. It is generally ranked alongside Brie, Camembert, and Roquefort as one of the most popular cheeses in France.
With its strong smell, you would of thought this to be a very powerful cheese but it is not the case since it is a fruity, subtle and refined cheese. “What beats everything is that it is very mild”.
