Since 1910, E. Graindorge Cheese Dairy has been passed down from father to son. Pont l’Eveque is probably the oldest Norman cheese still in production. Its origins trace back to the 12th century but it was only in the 17th century that it took its name from the village where it was made.
Pont l’Eveque is a square shaped cheese, with a light orange rind. It is a very rich and soft cheese, with a creamy, salty and pungent aroma. After washing, the rind is moist and ochre in colour. The body is creamy yellow, fine-textured and smooth.
Try Pont l’Eveque with crusty baguette and a fresh Norman Cider or a red wine from Burgundy.
