Part I: Cheese louise!

Are you a fan of hard cheese or soft cheese? For me, it’s soft cheese for sure. As you spread the soft yet thick and gooey paste on a piece of cracker or sourdough, and the creamy, slightly savoury, and buttery goodness that melts the moment it touches your tongue. It is truly a masterpiece. Pair up this delicious goodness with the right choice of wine and there you go. You can’t name me a better duo than the perfect wine and cheese pairing. 

Soft cheese gets its name from the soft and moist texture. The main difference between hard cheese and soft cheese is the process of making the cheese – soft cheese is not aged which retains all the moisture, hence the soft texture. At CAVEMEN Restaurant & Bar, it is common to see our guests savouring their favourite wine with a cheese platter. However, with our wide selection of cheese, it can be tough to pick. So do read on to learn more about some of our soft cheeses.

Camembert Calvados

Camembert Calvados

A Norman cheese made from cow milk, Camembert Calvados is firstly aged, then the ripened Camembert is then soaked in Calvados (Apple Brandy) before it gets coated in fine biscuit crumbs. This process gives the cheese its fruity, nutty and intense flavours. For the ultimate experience, pair this cheese with a glass of white wine or light red wine. Mmmm C’est délicieux!

Blu Del Moncenisio

Blu Del Moncenisio

Ivory coloured paste with blue marbling, this Italian blue cheese is dense and rich. It is an unpressed cheese that accounts for the high moisture content and creamy mouthful. Blu Del Moncenisio is strong, intense, and contains notes of chocolate with a salty edge. It is best enjoyed with full-bodied red wine or liqueur wine. 

Royal Faucon Camembert 

Royal Faucon Camembert 

The Camembert de Caractere (as the name suggests, a Camembert of character) is more than a simple cheese: it has become one of the symbols of French gastronomy. Made in Normandy, this versatile cheese can be served in many ways. From being served on a cheese platter to being baked in its own box, its mild, sweet, and fruity flavour make it a perfect pairing. This wheel of fresh cheese can brighten up any holiday party yet be the reliable and classic item that you must have in your kitchen. Royal Faucon Camembert pairs well with Champagne, Prosecco or fruity red wine. 

Petit Camembert

Petit Camembert

The little brother of the classic Camembert, Petit Camembert is just as delicious, with flavours that are less rich and intense in comparison. This creamy, oozing goodness has a golden, buttery interior with notes of hazelnuts.
