Camembert’s fame only spread in the late 1880s, when an engineer called Riddel invented the wooden box which houses it. This box allowed the Camembert to age perfectly in a controlled, humidified environment, and protected the cheese so it could be transported to the markets of Paris.

This ‘petit’ Camembert is the little sibling of the classic Camembert de Normandie, and is made at the Graindorge dairy in Livarot. Cheesemaking has been in the Graindorge family for three generations since the dairy was set up by Eugène Graindorge in 1910. Although cheesemaking has expanded under Eugène’s grandson, Thierry, a century later, the cheese is still hand-ladled and made from only the best, unpasteurised local milk from the Norman cows of the Pays d’Auge.
