EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Muenster (MUHN-stuhr ) cheese originates from the Alsace region of France. This semi-soft cheese is mild when young and becomes more robust as it ages. American versions of this cheese are quite bland.

Cocktail rye bread can be used in place of the pumpernickel bread.

Make the spread up to one day in advance. Cover tightly and refrigerate.
