Did you know it? The legend (historically not very credible) says that the origin of Camembert cheese comes from the meeting between Marie Harel, an inhabitant of the town of Camembert, and the priest Charles-Jean Bonvoust. After the young girl helped the priest escape the republicans, he revealed to her the secret of making the cheese. Later, having tasted this cheese, Napoleon III became a fan and requested the Camembert cheese to be delivered to his Tuileries palace in Paris!
