Neufchâtel – the heart-shaped Normandy cheese

Published on February 14, 2016 by Chris Robinson

The heart-shaped Neufchâtel cheese is produced in the village of Neufchâtel-en-Bray in the Seine-Maritime department of Upper Normandy. Similar in appearance to Camembert or Brie with an edible and soft white rind. The taste is slightly salty and it has a grainy and crumbly texture. It’s made from cows milk and matured for 8 to 10 weeks. It is one of the oldest cheeses in France and it’s believed that young French women gave it to soldiers during the Middle Ages as a sign of their affection. Nowadays it is often to be found topping a cheese tower for a wedding celebration.

Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
