Creme Fraiche is a French term that literally means 'fresh cream'. Creme Fraiche is made from cow's milk and is similar to sour cream, but is much thicker and richer. The cream leaves a nutty, cultured flavor on your tongue, just shy of on to add a little something extra. Melt over pastas or saut e;ed vegetables for an instant cream sauce or incorporate it into herbed mashed potatoes for an extra tang. Don't feel limited to the main course though. Top fresh berries with a bit of sugar and a dollop of Creme Fraiche to compliment their tart flavors. If you are looking for a wine pairing, try Champagne to cut through the rich texture.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.
