You’ll have noticed when I reviewed Ryvita that my photos included Boursin cheese… that’s because I had quite a selection of it sent to me recently to review here on Splodz Blogz. And just look at it – we barely got any pictures before diving in!
Not something we’ve had before (that we can remember), we didn’t really know what to expect. Described as “creamy, crumbly goodness” that is exactly what we got – it pretty much fell apart as we took it out of the wrapper, but once smoothed onto ryvita it was so very creamy. The combination of flavours was simply gorgeous, we piled it high and it didn’t last long!
This particular flavour worked exceptionally well on its own on the chilli Ryvita, but some of the other flavours (and there are several, which gives nice variety) work well with other ingredients too. The black pepper one worked excellently with a slice of pickled beetroot on top…
…and the Garlic and Fine Herb worked perfectly with a dollop of red onion chutney. Mmmmmm. I can just imagine having Boursin with smoked salmon or some fine charcuterie – divine.
There are a couple of flavours with fruit in – I tried the fig one and enjoyed it very much, but my other half really wasn’t sure and didn’t join me (but then he won’t have cheese with apple or grapes either). There’s a cranberry and apple one out in the winter months, and I reckon that would be brilliant for a festive supper.
If you’ve never tried Boursin like I hadn’t then I’d recommend you give it a go. A very mild cheese it works well on crackers or on toast, so good. Honestly, it gets a 10/10 review from me, I’m sold.
