About

Camembert was created in 1791 in Normandy. Some sources claim it was invented by Marie Harel who was a farming woman in Camembert, Orne, who helped a fugitive priest who was escaping the "Terror". In return for refuge, he taught her to make cheese that could form a white rind. Thereafter it was regularly sold at the nearby market of Vimoutiers. The cheese only achieved national acclaim when it was presented to Naploean III during the World Fair of 1855, and international success in 1888 after the engineer Ridel created its famous cylindrical wooden box which meant it was able to travel without a problem.
