Boursin Cheese is a creamy (75% butterfat), mild cheese made from pasteurized cow's milk to which is added cream and seasonings.
It is sold either in 5 oz (150g) cylinders, or in packages of 6 individually-wrapped portion pieces. Either way, it's wrapped in foil.
There is a plain version, but more prevalent are the versions that are flavoured with garlic and herbs, or coated with pepper. Other flavours include onion and chive, salmon and olive, etc.
Rondelé and Alouette are American versions.
Mix in a food processor using steel blade:
- 8 ounces (225g) of cream cheese
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon minced parsley
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
In 1968, Boursin became the first cheese to have a television commercial campaign in France, based on the slogan "Du pain, du vin et du boursin" (bread, wine and boursin), which became famous.
In 1983, the business was bought out by Unilever.
Moretum was a Roman version of Boursin.
