Lanquetot Pont L'Evêque
I first discovered Pont L'Evêque when visiting family in Normandy—an early childhood experience that may have inspired my career as a cheesemonger. Unusual in its square shape, it is one of the oldest cheeses in France, originally crafted by 12th century monks. To this day, this washed-rind cheese’s slightly sweet aroma is rumored to be reminiscent of the plentiful apple orchards in the region. I highly recommend serving it alongside apple slices or ciders for an authentic Normande experience.
