A spreadable processed cheese that is produced in France. Similar to other processed cheeses made by combining natural cheese with emulsifiers, stabilizers and vegetable-based gums, Gourmandise Cheese is a smooth and creamy cheese that may be seasoned with flavorings and/or nuts such as Kirsch liqueur, cherry juice or bits of walnuts. Gourmandise is formed into wheels that may weigh 3 to 5 pounds or small round cakes of cheese. The larger wheels are most often cut into wedges and repackaged for sale in the cheese department of food stores. This cheese is typically served as an appetizer with crackers or as a dessert cheese that may be topped with sauteed nuts or served with slices of fruit.
