Normandy cheeses

Published on December 2, 2016 by Chris Robinson

Day 2 of my Normandy Advent Calendar where I share some of my favourite things about Normandy. Today the focus is on the 4 cheeses produced in the region - Camembert, Livarot, Pont l'Evêque and Neufchâtel. Camembert takes its name from the village in Calvados where it was first produced. It is also produced at the Réo cheese factory in Lessay in La Manche region. The cheeses are made by hand rather than machine. You can take a tour of the factory where you'll learn that it takes 2 litres of milk to make a 250g camembert. At the end of the tour you get to taste the cheese and can also buy other products. More information about the Lessay fromagerie at www.reaux.fr

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.
