Muscat de Beaumes de Venise
« Nearly two thousand years ago, Pliny the Elder wrote in his Natural History: "The Muscat grape has been grown for a long time in Beaumes and its wine is remarkable".
In 1248, St. Louis took supplies of it with him on his 7th Crusade, and during the early 14th century, at the time of the reign of Pope Clement V, production was increased by 70 hectares to cater for the demand from the Popes' Palace in Avignon».
A French cheese, manufactured in Normandie. It is probably the oldest Norman cheese still in production. The cheese has been made in Normandy since at least the 12th century, and local legend claims that it was first made in a Norman abbey. A manuscript from the time writes that a fine meal should always end with some "angelot", the name used for the cheese at the time. The cheese became popular across the country from the 16th century onwards, when it obtained the name of the village around which its production was centred. Source : Wikipedia
