You know it as that “Cooking Channel” dairy product
Or maybe you haven’t heard of it at all. Kriemhild introduced its Crème Fraîche a couple of years ago, and since then we’ve spoken with customers like you and learned that your familiarity with Crème Fraîche greatly varies.
So, we are on a mission:
To expose crème fraîche for what it truly is -- an easy, tasty, healthy, all-purpose cultured cream. Starting tomorrow, Kriemhild Dairy Farms embraces a new challenge: 30 days of Crème Fraîche for Breakfast, or as we like to call it, #cremefast. For 30 straight days we will offer up a variety of breakfast recipes that include crème fraîche. Join us as we shed light onto the unexamined life of Crème Fraîche!
But first, a Crème Fraîche crash course:
Crème Fraîche is a fermented heavy cream with French origins.
Crafted thru a similar culturing process to yogurt or sour cream, the unique mix of cultures and cream used in Crème Fraîche gives it a flavor very distinguishable from every other cultured dairy product.
It tastes great in both savory or sweet dishes
Crème fraîche is a culinary triple-threat performing well at hot, cold, and room temperatures. Unlike sour cream, crème fraîche will not curdle at higher temperatures due to its higher fat content. Therefore, it easily incorporates into sauces and soups. Meanwhile, crème fraîche has a delightful subtle sweetness that complements any dessert, either as a topping or in the baked good itself. Also, there are endless types of dips you can make with crème fraîche. Don’t even get me started.
You don’t have to be a chef to use it. Or even that good at making food at all. Seriously.
Although understandably popular in French cuisine, you don’t need to be Julia Child to reap the benefits of the taste, texture, and nutrition of crème fraîche. And we’ll prove it. We believe Crème Fraîche is an underutilized dairy wonder and we’re determined to bring it to your table.
Here’s how the challenge works:
Our team of dairy enthusiasts took it upon themselves to gather 30 diverse and delicious breakfast recipes. Breakfast and crème fraîche seemed like a natural fit to us, and we want to show that to you.
Over the next 30 days, we’ll be sharing these winning recipes daily via instagram, pintrest, and wrapping up each week here on our shiny new blog.
Our objective is to prove how versatile this fermented cream can really be.
We’ve compiled a diverse team of real-world "field cooks" for this journey. We want to show you that whether you’re a hustling entrepreneur, a diligent parent, or a hard-working farmer you can enjoy dairy’s most delicious phenomenon with 30 convenient breakfast ideas.
You are the most important part of this grand plan; it's all about real world experience. Let us in on your #cremefast; tell us your favorite way to use crème fraîche for breakfast. Take the leap, try something new, start your days Fraîche, and share your experience.
Here's to the journey. Eat well!
