Delice De Cremier (also known as Délice de Bourgogne or Burgundy Delight) is a soft, ripe, bloomy rind cheese from the Burgundy region of France. The cheese is made by blending full fat cow’s milk with crème fraîche to create an incredibly delicious soft cheese. It is a soft-ripened triple-cream cheese. The creamy texture results from the extra cream that is added during the cheese-making process. It is so refreshing on the palette, it is classed as a pudding cheese. Delice de Bourgogne has a white, bloomy rind because of the Penicillium Candidum mould. The mushroomy aroma of thin rind adds a playful contrast to the rich, creamy, buttery and tangy notes of the interior. It has a rich flavour and a smooth, melt-in-the-mouth texture.
Production of Delice De Cremier
From Burgundy in south-west France, the bloomy white mould rind will soften the outside of the cheese when allowed to ripen. Under the thin white rind, the interior is super-decadent. Rich and creamy with a cakey, whipped texture. It will literally melt in your mouth. It is absolutely stunning at any time of year when cows’ milk is coming to its best. This rich, creamy cow’s milk cheese has crème fraîche is added to the milk during the cheesemaking process. The result is a soft, sweet and buttery flavour with a hint of salt and slight tang on the finish. Delice de Bourgogne is modelled on the famous triple cream cheese Brillat Savarin, but has a lovely tang.
