Versatile Boursin cheese works so well with beef, red onion and arugula, creating a melted burst of flavor that is sure to satisfy.

Imported from France, Boursin — perhaps the best known of the triple-cream cheeses —is a rich, soft, uncured cheese that is often infused with herbs, garlic or cracked pepper. It has a delicate flavor and a velvety consistency. I use this amazing cheese in many recipes and serve it on a cheese board for elegant entertaining.

Serve with fresh grapes and strawberries to complement the flavors.

Bolillo rolls — one of the most popular breads in Mexico — are made with a basic dough similar to French baguette dough. The rolls have a crispy crust with a soft, chewy crumb. If you can’t find them, you can substitute submarine rolls, sourdough rolls or hoagie rolls.
