Tasting Notes from the Curator
Often compared to sour cream, Crème Fraîche is the premium version, often added to a variety of dishes to add richness and for the tangy flavor. In France, Crème Fraîche was traditionally made from unpasteurized cream that naturally contained the right bacteria to thicken it. Since our cream is pasteurized here, crème fraîche is now made by adding fermenting agents with the necessary bacteria to cream.
Crème Fraîche from Échiré has a fat content of 38% and does not contain any added thickeners. It is rich in flavor and less tangy than sour cream which tends to overpower dishes at times.
Due to its fat content, Crème Fraîche can withstand simmering or boiling without it curdling. Add to sauces or soups during the cooking process. Some also use it for salad or as a topping.
Quality Dairy Producer since 1891
Échiré dairy was founded in 1891 by Mr. du Dresnay in the outhouses of a building situated on the banks of the Sèvre Niortaise River, right in the heart of the village. The dairy became a cooperative in 1894. The spring which supplied the municipal wash house also supported the needs of the dairy and ever since its foundation, the dairy has been solely dedicated to producing butter and creams renowned for its quality.
