Boursin Cheese  
A popular French cow's milk cheese that is produced as a spreadable cheese in small cylindrical shapes. The cheese is a pale yellow to off-white in color with a texture that is crumbly, creamy and very soft. Traditionally made as a buttery and sweet tasting cheese, Boursin is also also produced as a flavored cheese with garlic or peppercorns to enhance the flavor. It is excellent as a spread for bread or crackers as well as a cheese to be served for an hors d'oeuvre, a snack and for use in baked recipes. Boursin cheese sauce is a common topping for beef, poultry and vegetables. Melting the cheese in a pan with meat drippings is enjoyed over cooked meats or with vegetables, combining cream, wine and herbs with the melted cheese to create a savory addition for many foods.
