Soft Blue cheese

From Cookipedia


Etymology

In Welsh (and French!), 'Pont' means bridge and Gâr derives from Sir Gâr, Welsh for Carmarthenshire. Gâr is also linked to the Welsh word for love (caru) – hence the abstract heart motif and the well-known Welsh phrase ‘Pur o Galon’ pure from the heart as a strapline.
