With its washed rind and buttery consistency, this decadent triple-cream, soft-ripened cheese provides an attractive appearance on any table with its distinct reddish tint on the outer edge and the white brie mold on top. But Rougette Bavarian Red has a taste all its own, ready to be discovered. Unlike more aggressive washed-rind cheeses, Rougette brings a full flavor without a sharp, pungent smell. When served at your next gathering, your family and friends will love the sweet, buttery taste spread on crackers or bread. Treat yourself and your guests to this lush, spreadable cheese!
It is best eaten at room temperature and paired with fruits such as mangos, kiwis and strawberries. It also pairs well with pecans, walnuts and hazelnuts. Due to its high butterfat content, Rougette Bavarian Red is a perfect cheese to melt on top of food: try it melted on your steak or slices of bread. For a delicious side dish, place Rougette Bavarian Red on top of sliced cooked potatoes and pop the dish into the oven to let the cheese melt. Goes great with a spicy wine, Champagne, as well as medium - to full-bodied varieties. If you're just getting into washed-rind cheeses, this is a good place to start.
