Tuesdays with Murray: Cremeux de Bourgogne

Cremeux de Bourgogne cheese

Now that the sun is out once again and beating down on us for the foreseeable future, we’re excited to trade in the comforts of cheese in lieu of new cocktails and other fun summer libations. So, this will be our last installment of Tuesdays with Murray until the weather turns gloomy again, at which time we’ll most definitely need to be cheered up with a good cheese. Speaking of cheer, we’ve saved our absolute favorite cheese for last!

We first discovered the Cremeux de Bourgogne, a French cow’s milk triple-creme from Burgundy, on New Year’s Eve 2010. The guys at Murray’s recommended it to us as a perfectly hedonistic cheese to help ring in the new year. We enjoyed it that night along with foie gras pâté, braised pork belly and, of course, a few glasses of Champagne.

I don’t think either of us will forget how great the Cremeux was when paired with the yeasty, brioche-like flavors of the wine. Even with pork belly and foie nearby, we found ourselves mainly just snacking on the Bourgogne. Since then, it’s been a permanent fixture.

All it takes is a few minutes in room temperature to make this triple-creme practically melt out of its rind. In fact, I would compare the consistancy and even the flavor of this cheese to crème fraîche.

Being so much like a delicate creme, I sliced up some strawberries I got from the greenmarket this week and placed tiny dollops of the Bourgogne on them. I also made some thin, lavash-style crackers topped with sea salt and olive oil to spread the cheese on.

We’ve served this cheese at everything from dinner parties to breakfast in bed and we honestly think it is one of the best cheeses ever. If you’re looking to stun at your next party, you could do no better than a big slab of this pillowy, dreamy cheese.

P.S. We’re headed to L.A. on Wednesday for a wedding, and we’re excited to bring you a few posts detailing our adventures while there. See you then!

  • That sounds incredible right now. I spent a summer living in Bourgogne and have a few wines in mind that I’d also like to have right about now. With that.

  • Hi there!
    I honestly can’t think of any business that wouldn’t want their business in a tv commercial.
    However its really expensive and so untargeted! How many sales or customers do you think you will gain if you had a commercial running when they were looking for your business?
    My name is Sal and I am looking to work with a few businesses for an online commercial. Instead of being on TV, I want to put your business front and center with a video billboard (commercial) on Google & Youtube in your local area. Not just 1. Not just 5. Not just 10.
    But a complete domination of your local market with as many video billboard commercials that it takes to dominate your area.
    How many new customers will you get if they search for your service or product and all they see are billboards showcasing you?
    I have a few spots open. To see proof of results and what it can do for you please go to http://accuratemediasolutions.info to see some sample results and how we can do the same for you.
