St Marcellin cheese has a history which dates back to Louis XI, governor of the Dauphiné, who would later become King Louis XV. He was attacked by a bear while out hunting and was saved by two local lumberjacks , who accompanied him and gave him some St Marcellin cheese to calm his nerves. The future king found the cheese delicious and when he returned to court he gave each of the lumberjacks a noble title, as he had promised, and spread the news of the delicious cheese he had tasted.
