- 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.
