MATURING YOUR LE RUSTIQUE CAMEMBERT

Le Rustique Camembert is a soft cheese with a bloomy rind. Its flavour, texture, smell and appearance change as the product ages.

Our master cheese-makers have put all their knowledge and expertise into the recipe for Le Rustique Camembert. At its optimum Le Rustique Camembert has a creamy texture and rich, garlicky taste, which is a real treat for all lovers of flavoursome cheese.

We take every care to mature the cheese in our ripening rooms but how ripe it is when you enjoy it is up to you. Enjoy it however you choose:

Young: 35 days before the Use By Date, your Le Rustique Camembert is only slightly matured; it is a young cheese, its texture is quite firm and its flavour is light and fresh.

Ripe: Between 20 and 35 days before the Use By Date, your Le Rustique Camembert is ripe. Its texture is soft and melt-in-the-mouth and its distinctive flavour has developed.

Mature: 20 days before the Use By Date, your Le Rustique Camembert is now mature and its distinctive flavour is more pronounced. The texture is now very creamy, soft and melting.

NB: You can find the Use By Date printed on the side of the box.

We recommend storing your Le Rustique Camembert in its original packaging in a fridge set to between 4 and 8°C.

To enjoy your Camembert at its best, take it out of the fridge 30 minutes before serving.
