Pont-l'Evêque cheese is probably one of the oldest Norman cheese.
In the 12th century, it was originally known as "Angelot" (cherub), a coin used as currency and also to pay taxes. The current name comes from the Pays d'Auge where the Pont L’Evèque originates. The soil and climate allow cows to produce a quality milk useful to cheese makers in applying their unique expertise.
Every day, one by one, Pont l’Evêque are turned before entering the maturing cellars where they develop a subtle, fruity taste reminiscent of hazelnut under an orange bloomy rind.
