This little, fluffy slice of heaven is one versatile piece of cheese! The delicious creamy Cremeux de Bourgogne is something that can be added to a cheese board, on a slice of toast, added to a sauce mixture, a risotto. So many options, so little time!
Cremeux de Bourgogne is very similar to Brillat Savarin. It’s sweet, mild and milky pate is so delicate it will simply melt in your mouth. If you like creamy, this is a definite winner for you. Essentially, Le Cremeux de Bourgogne is a triple cream, however, we find it much creamier than others we have tried before.
