Camembert is a French cheese that originates in the Normandy province of France. Ripe Camembert is fairly soft in texture and quite similar in appearance to brie cheese, including its white waxy coating. Camembert has a pleasantly sharp flavor that has been compared to a combination of brie and cheddar cheese. They can be easily spread on bread or crackers and is best served with a red wine. It can also be cooked in a variety of ways including as a sauce for steak. I would recommend trying Camembert at room temperature with crackers, grapes, and a bottle of red wine. Camembert can be difficult to buy in most grocery stores all they do sometimes carry it. Your best bet is a specialty food store or online at such websites as artisanalcheese.com or igourmet.com.
