poppy .. that's just my personal preference .. don't think there's anything wrong with cream per se

what's it for anyway?

kid Sun 07-Aug-05 20:07:25

is there any difference between creme fraiche and fromage frais?

NannyL Sun 07-Aug-05 20:22:34

there is a diff between fromagge frais and cream fraiche... you just have to eat it to find out!

and they CAN have cream (along with all other adult cows products) from 6 months

thought creme fraiche was just cream that had gone off in a posh way?

fromage frais is a cheese isn't it? Runny cheese (sounds lovely )

Creme Fraiche
A rich, thick cream cheese which is faintly soured. Wonderful over fruits and desserts, it is not a true cheese. Creme Fraiche is made by adding a culture to a fresh cream.

Fromage Frais
Moist, creamy, white, fresh cheese made from the mixture of goat's and sheep's milk. This cheese has to be unripenned and made from milk coagulated by lactic fermentation. This bacteria must be active in the cheese when sold. It must contain 10 to 15 g dry matter per 100 g of cheese. This cheese has to be eaten soon after production. The cheese varies in fat content, which ranges from maigre (very low) to allege (double) and triple crème.
