Though similar to Camembert, Neufchatel are richer and rougher in texture, with a more distinct and fluffy rind. Despite having one of the oldest AOC they are available in four different shapes; in this case a heart. The heart shape is said to have originated during the hundred years war – when local dairy maids fell in love with English soldiers stationed in Normandie. They made the hearts as tokens. The drier rougher texture of Neufchatel – in comparison to camembert – comes from the pressing of the curds before they are placed in moulds.
