PONT-L’ÉVÊQUE WRAPPED IN SERRANO HAM (Pont l’Évêque et jambon Serrano)

(Pont l’Évêque et jambon Serrano)

I love this last minute apéritif when I receive my friends : easy and chic! But maybe you have no idea what on Earth is a Pont-l'Évêque ? Now you know...

The Pont-l'Évêque is a French cheese, manufactured in Normandie. It is probably the oldest Norman cheese still in production. The cheese has been made in Normandy since at least the 12th century, and local legend claims that it was first made in a Norman abbey. A manuscript from the time writes that a fine meal should always end with some "angelot", the name used for the cheese at the time. The cheese became popular across the country from the 16th century onwards, when it obtained the name of the village around which its production was centred. Source : Wikipedia
The Pont-l'Évêque cheese has an Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC).
