Goodgiver, from what I've been able to learn, "grand" camembert is an award-winning camembert. You can use it as you would any other camembert.

How about using it in ham/camembert tarts, etc.? Since it's a soft cheese, let it sit at room temp and serve it on "gourmet" crackers with fruit. Serve it with grapes, pears or apples.

That's all I can think of right now. Others will, no doubt, come with more suggestions.

Not sure about the difference between Grand Camembert vs. Camembert. I just finished the entire Camembert pack I bought a few days back from the grocery store.

Actually even though Camembert and Brie are soft cheeses I think Camembert is much more pungent than Brie. I personally like Brie over Camembert.

Here is how I eat mine:

Slice up french bread thinly and toast it with some butter until golden. Place a few dabs of camembert and a tiny bit of seedless raspberry jam. It is to die for.

I love my brie as well with raspberries the flavors just go so well together.

Yakuta, that sounds fantastic. I usually just smear mine on french bread, rind and all. I will try your idea!

What is the difference between Grand and no-Grand?
