Touvelle isn’t quite a Cheddar or a Jack – it’s an original recipe created by Rogue Creamery that embodies the best of both. It combines the creamy mildness and meltability of Jack with the tangy, nutty flavors of Cheddar to create a distinctive cheese that will melt and brown beautifully. A versatile crowd-pleaser that can be used in a myriad of recipes!
Appearance: Pale, creamy yellow cheese
Texture: Moderately firm yet sliceable
Taste: Sweet cream, roasted nuts, and a tangy finish.
- Touvelle is a workhorse in the kitchen due to its meltable consistency and mild, approachable flavors. It browns beautifully atop a casserole, incorporates smoothly into a roux to create a cheese sauce, and it serves as a deliciously gooey binder in a quiche.
- Touvelle’s subtle flavors pair well with a refreshing, minerally white wine such as Pinot Gris or Chablis, as well as alongside a pilsner or ale.
