The Technique

Gournay-Style Cheese

Developed in 1957 in Normandy, France, Francois Boursin paid homage to his hometown of Gournay by naming this creamy, herb infused cheese after it. He created the cheese for market due to the overwhelming popularity of those in the region already preparing their own renditions to serve for parties. The original version blended from cows milk can be found in over 30 countries carrying  distinctive buttery notes with a crumbly texture. Garlic serves as the underlying flavor but a variety of herbs perfume the decadent cheese that pairs wonderfully with salads, fruit, vegetables & even a simple water cracker. When fresh flavors from the garden are desired, use them to handcraft a small batch of Gournay-style cheese. Learn the straightforward technique & offer this irresistible cheese at your next southern social.
