Gourmandise
with Walnut

Gourmandise, this soft, buttery textured French cheese, offers a very distinctive taste experience. It is exceptional in combining a delicate and smooth cheese paste with crunchy walnuts. Those who have tried it can't seem to get enough of it. Gourmandise is especially popular around the holidays, as it makes a unique party spread.

PROFILE

Ile de France Cheese Made from cow's milk, this spreadable processed cheese is a unique blend of aged cheeses (Gruyere and Cheddar), and cream, with a hint of added flavors. It is flavored with walnut and is excellent with pears and other winter fruits, or even accompanied by blue cheeses. Gourmandise is most commonly served as dessert cheese; a true delicacy especially when served with dessert wines like Sherry or Port or well chilled champagne.

HISTORY

Gourmandise: (noun) unrestrained enjoyment of fine foods, wines, and the like. The name Gourmandise is derived from French word "gourmet". It implies a satisfaction that is felt when savoring the taste of richly flavored delicacies. This exquisite cheese is appropriately named in account of its savory quality.

A french customer in our local cheese store (the owner had never heard of Gourmandise!) told me the Acme supermarket had a worthy equivalent called "Laughing Cow Creamy Asiago". Add your own walnuts! It's very good.

The cheese store that I usually buy from told me today that "Gourmandaise" (both walnut and Kirsch)was not being manufactured any more. Is this correct?
