~Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Joyous Kwanza to all! My apologies for my hiatus, I’ve been feverishly preparing for the holidays and gathering notes for several future posts.
I was able to cross another farmer’s market find off of my list: Camembert cheese! A close cousin to Brie, Camembert is more savory that sweet Brie and displays a distinct nutty aftertaste. After opening gifts, I thought today of all days would be best to bust out the cheese.
I cut a small wedge and spread it on some butter crackers and the taste sensation commenced. The buttery, crunchy cracker paired wonderfully with the creamy, nutty cheese. Although I didn’t find this Camembert from Stamper Cheese Company (they couldn’t produce it in time before market season ended), I would still put it on any meat and cheese plate.
I’m looking forward to utilizing Camembert to its full potential and experimenting with it in my cooking adventures!
