Rougette Bonfire Marinated Cheese is the first feta-style specialty cheese that offers consumers an easy, ready-to-cook version of the ever-popular (and viral) baked feta. This warm, crispy, and creamy feta-style cheese is made with 100% cow's milk sourced from the Alpine region of Bavaria, Germany, and it comes with a convenient aluminum tray for easy preparation and serving.
Far less salty than traditional feta, it boasts a pillowy soft interior and caramelized crust. Rougette Bonfire Marinated Cheese comes pre-marinated leading to its fantastic flavor and unbeatable texture and retains its shape after cooking, leading to a plethora of unique uses for this rich and satisfying cheese. Beyond its use as an alternative to traditional feta in oven-baked recipes, you can thread it onto skewers, dice and add to salads and pastas, or serve as a hot, melted dip to share with a crowd. It's a quick, easy, and mouthwatering solution to meat-free meals and appetizers or perfect for spicing up your grilling game during the warmer months.
"When we saw the popularity of the viral baked feta pasta trend, we knew we had a winner," said Flynne Wiley, CEO of Champignon North America and importer of Rougette Bonfire. "As the only warm, feta-style specialty cheese on the market, this fun and versatile option takes popular traybake recipes to the next level with an easier and more convenient way to cook at home or entertain a crowd, especially heading into summer."
Rougette Bonfire cheeses are naturally lactose-free, gluten-free, and due to the use of microbial rennet, 100% vegetarian.
Rougette Bonfire Marinated Cheese has an SRP of $7.99 for a 6.4-ounce package and is available at retailers nationwide, including Safeway, Costco, Hy-Vee, Albertsons, ALDI and more.
