Le Roulé is a hand-rolled cheese log filled with garlic, herbs, cranberry and peppers. It was originally produced in the 1980s by Fromagerie Triballat in the Center region of France. Made with pasteurized cow’s milk, the cheese is easily recognizable due to the distinctive swirl pattern. This North-East French produce has a creamy, melt-in-the-mouth texture with a combination of fresh herbs, garlic or cranberry added in for that extra zing.
The cheese has a respectable place on cheeseboard but can also be spread on a toast or used as an ingredient in cooking. Cranberry variant of Le Roulé with its unique sweetness works well for dessert or breakfast. Unveil a new flavor by adding it to mashed potatoes or risottos. Besides, one can use it as a substitute for crumbled fresh goat cheese on pizzas and salads. Red Sancerre or Champagne is recommended with a Le Roulé log.
