Correct response: What is Camembert?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
According to local legend, Marie Harel is credited as the invention of Camembert cheese, with the assistance of Brie priest Charles-Jean Bonvoust, who passed along advice about making cheese with an edible rind (like Brie). Camembert cheese is noted for having less cream than brie, a smaller wheel, and being packaged in thin round wooden boxes; the boxes made for very easy export, which led to Camembert becoming very popular in North America. Harel has been honored with a statue in Camembert, as well as an April 2017 Google Doodle commemorating her 256th birthday.
