Boursin Cheese, the namesake of its inventor François Boursin, was created in 1957 in Normandy, France. Inspired by a popular French party dish—Fromage Frais—which consists of soft cheese, seasoned by each guest with a selection of fresh herbs and spices, Boursin sought to create a ready-made version for regular consumption.
One of many flavoured varieties in which Boursin cheese is nowadays available: this decadent, spreadable cream cheese with a fluffy, lightly whipped consistency—is seasoned with aromatic, piquant, pleasantly pungent cracked black pepper.
Boursin is now popularly enjoyed around the World as part of various hors d’oeuvres, on bread and crackers, at mealtimes or snack times. Try adding it to mashed potatoes, or as your new favourite bagel schmear with lox, capers, and your other favourite dressings.
