Roland has tried to explain to me why creme fraiche is so special and that often, it's been a challenge to find the real deal. I didn't get it until after I had some and, it's marvelous!! It is so versatile and can be incorporated into many things from desserts to the main dish. Creme Fraiche is a mainstay in many French dishes.
I guess I thought of it more like a sour cream but, in actuality, it's something quite different. I have included some different articles that will give you a taste of what creme fraiche is all about and some sampling of the different ways it can be used.
When Roland and I met, I was one of those people who opened the box or can and warmed up the family meal. After our marriage in 2005, I truely began to appreciate what food is really about, not only that it can taste very good, and be nutritious, but that it can be a celebration of who you are and the people that you share it with.
