Crémet du cap Blanc-Nez cheese

Crémet du cap Blanc-Nez is a soft, farmhouse, unpasteurised cows' milk cheese from the Nord-Pas de Calais region of France. It was created by Philippe Olivier in the 1990s and takes its name from the white cliffs of Cap Blanc-Nez, between Calais and Boulogne-sur-Mer. The cows graze freely on the pastures of the Caps area and as it is located by the sea, the cheese has a very salty taste. As an artisan cheese, production is very limited (about 150 cheeses a week) so it is difficult to obtain outside of the area.

The cheese is made with added double cream and has a white mouldy rind. It is dome shaped and the high content of cream adds an intense, lingering flavour. It is dome-shaped and matured for about 3 weeks. The diameter of the base is 11 cm and 7 cm at the top, with a height of 8 cm and a weight of approximately 500 g. The fat to dry matter content is between 50% and 60%.
