Boursin launched the competition following research that unveiled how Brits are enjoying their favourite continental cuisines while on staycation and travelling with their taste buds while restricted to holidaying at home. 

With half of those surveyed agreeing food is one of the most important aspects of any holiday and a quarter stating they’re likely to spend more money on food and drink on a UK holiday, the ‘Bed & Boursin’ upgrazes the traditional bed and breakfast experience to offer a truly sensory staycation complete with lots of tasty twists designed to indulge cheese lovers. 

Boursin’s survey found that more than two fifths of those who have holidayed in the UK have tried to produce French cheese boards and Mediterranean feasts with family and friends.
