La Vache Normande

 

Can’t discuss the cheeses from Normandy without first discussing from where they came. The Normandy cow know as “la Normande” is claimed to have been imported from viking settlers. They are known for their unique ‘splotchy’ pattern are revered for their meat and milk production.

 

Camembert of Normandy, Pont-L’eveque, Livarot and Neufchatel cheeses are only allowed to be producced with milk from these cows.
