Appetizer idea: Three ways to serve Boursin cheese
was first introduced in 1957 in Normandy, France, by expert cheese maker
Francois Boursin. Inspired by a traditional dish, fromage frais (fresh cheese),
in which guests created their own seasoned cheese from a bowl of fine herbs, he
introduced Boursin Garlic & Fine Herbs, which quickly became popular
throughout France and around the world.Today, Boursin remains a favorite addition to any appetizer
Here are three ways to enjoy this gourmet spreadable cheese:
For a fresh, savory appetizer: Halve a cucumber lengthwise,
scrape out the seeds with a spoon and fill with Boursin. Cut into ½” sections
and top each one with a sundried tomato.
Put Boursin in a plastic baggie. Snip off one of the bottom
corners of the baggie and squeeze the cheese into peppadew peppers from our
deli. Easy, spicy and delicious!
Spread Boursin on large, fresh spinach leaves. Lay a piece
of smoked salmon on top of each leaf. Roll up, cut in half and serve.
Serve your Boursin appetizer with a white Bordeaux. Look for
Boursin Garlic & Fine Herbs in our deli.
