Artisan cheesemonger is offering readers of the opportunity to win a unique Valentine’s gift set of a delicious Coeur de Neufchatel cheese and a hand-crafted, heart-shaped slate cheeseboard to help serve it on.
I have a recipe that specifically calls for Neufchatel cheese. What's the difference between this cheese and regular cream cheese? Can one be substituted for the other? —A.K., Torrance, California
Lastly, cream cheeses are obviously the ideal cheese for making cheese cakes. Substituting the cheese component with other cheeses like the Neufchatel cheese simply won’t do the exact same desired result.
