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.

I believe we had the kirsch version of this cheese in Toronto in the late 50's, probably bought from the fine foods section of T.Eaton Co, or Robert Simpson Co. It came in large wedges if I remember correctly. My relatives now live near Poitiers in France and want to find some for xmas gifts. Can you advise where they may order or purchase same. Merci!

I had the Gourmandise cheese with kirsch many years ago, and I can't seem to find it anywhere in NH. Do you to know where I can buy it in southern NH? Thanks.

My wife and I just discovered this cheese recently at our local Publix supermarket. I will agree with the statement I saw online that people who try this style Gourmandise cheese just can't seem to get enough. It is the most delicious cheese we have found, and it is wonderful. I would love to be able to find some of the kirsch version to try. I don't want to order cheese through the mail but I might have to make an exception.

This used to be one of my Mom's favorite cheeses, but I haven't had it in years. I see it's now available in Walnut and Kirsch, but I swear I remember at least one other flavor--mushroom. Am I imagining this, or did you one have more flavors?

Attention Canadians: Both the walnut and the kirsch version can, at times, be found at Springbank Cheese Co. in Woodstock On and Calgary AB. Most often around prime entertaining seasons such as Easter and Christmas.
