I like to put out different cheeses and crackers when I am having friends for dinner and I usually do this after dessert has been served.
One cheese that I always make sure I buy for this is the Boursin cheese which is a white coloured cheese that is flavoured of garlic and herbs. The Boursin can be quite dear to buy and it comes in to sizes but I usually buy the smallest and this costs around £1.20.
The cheese is soft and is easy to put on crackers or biscuits and you can see the bits of herbs through the cheese. It has a strong garlic and cheese smell so I try and wrap it up before it goes in the fridge.
The Boursin taste is very strong and mostly of garlic and herb. It is lovely to eat though and is nice with strong coffee after a dinner party.
I have had other types of garlic and herb cheese before but these are not as nice as Boursin and I think it is worth the extra I need to pay for it.
The Boursin cheese is in a white cardboard box in the fridge in the supermarket and it has a nice green design on the front with a picture of the garlic and herbs. The package is eye catching and it looks quite nice. Inside the box there is a wrapper covering the cheese but I do not think this helps keep the smell in so I try and wrap it up when it is in my fridge.
I have bought the cheese from Co-op supermarkets and from Tesco so you can find it quite easily.
I like it and would suggest giving it a try but only if you like a strong garlic taste because this cheese is very strong and if you are not keen on garlic then I do not think you would like it.
I will keep buying it even though it is dearer than other garlic cheeses because I think the Boursin cheese is a bit better and so is worth the extra money.
Summary: NICE AND TASTY
