Home Cheese how to
There's nothing better than cool and creamy ice cream on a warm summer day. For something new, try elevating the flavor of regular ice cream with gourmet French cheese from Ile de France. The combination may sound a bit unusual, but once you taste the cool blend of sweet and savory, you'll have a totally new dessert experience to savor this summer!
Try our Blueberry Goat Cheese Ice Cream, St. Andre Gelato with Plum Compote or our Peach Ice Cream with Brie recipes and see for yourself. For something simpler, try these ice cream and cheese dessert pairings.
Brie Cheese with Vanilla Ice Cream
For your first ice cream and cheese pairing, try Ile de France Brie with vanilla ice cream. This mild treat is a great way to taste how creamy cheese and ice cream work together to create a velvety delight. Add fresh blueberries for another doze of mellow sweet flavor.
Camembert & Coffee Ice Cream
Rich Camembert Cheese is a bit stronger than Brie. Its intense creaminess is a great way to balance out the robust flavor of coffee ice cream while adding a delicious new texture.
Cherry Ice Cream with Goat Cheese
If sweet and tangy is what you're after, then this is just for you. Cherry ice cream has a rich sweet flavor. Paired with fresh, tangy Ile de France Goat cheese the result is a creamy, full-flavored treat. Top with fresh cherries.
Blueberry Goat Cheese Ice Cream
This summer treat is full of rich, complex, sweet flavor. On its own, blueberry ice cream is creamy and has just the right amount of rich sweetness from juicy blueberries. Adding Ile de France Goat Cheese creates a silky treat with a bit of tang to it.
