What is neufchatel cheese?

Neufchatel cheese is a soft, slightly crumbly cow's milk cheese originating from the town of Neufchatel-en-Bray in Normandy, France. It has a rich history, dating back to the 6th century. The cheese is known for its distinctive heart shape, although it can also be found in other forms.

Neufchatel is made from whole cow's milk and has a lower fat content compared to cream cheese. It is a soft-ripened cheese with a bloomy rind, similar to Camembert or Brie. The flavor is mushroomy, nutty, salty, and sharp, with a smooth and creamy texture. It is often used as a spread for bread, crackers, and bagels, but can also be used in cooking and baking.
