Top Cheese

We visited the annual cheese fair in the Normandy town of Pont L'Évêque today. There are a number of different soft Normandy cheeses (including Camembert and pungent Livarot) but my favourite is the creamy Pont L'Évêque cheese.

Cheese ain't that good for your waist line, as two years living in France demonstrates, but it tastes damn good when bought on site and eaten with freshly baked bread. You can spot a Pont L'Évêque cheese a mile off because it's square, as the prizes in the photo demonstrate.
