Isigny Ste. Mère’s decadent crème fraîche is one of the few with AOP status, making it as authentically French as Comté or Roquefort. The protected designation of origin ensures that it’s made according to tradition. High-quality cream from cows grazing in Normandy’s marshland is cultured and slowly aged for 18 hours. This care and patience create a product that’s thick and creamy, equal parts rich and zippy. This true French treat is effortlessly chic with scones and V Smiley Cherry Rosehip Jam.

“You can really taste the tradition and Normandy terroir in this crème fraîche. It’s just so creamy and luscious. I add a dollop on top of waffles and they’re immediately restaurant-worthy, with a drizzle of Crown Maple Syrup.”

Pastuerized Cultured Cream

Allergens: Milk

  • Crème fraîche is a decadent French cultured cream originating in the dairy-producing regions of France.
  • Made by Isigny Ste. Mère, a highly regarded Normandy producer of dairy products, this is one of the few AOP crème fraîches on the market.
  • AOP stands for “Appellation d’Origine Protégée” or protected designation of origin. This label ensures that the food is made according to its traditions. It has to be produced in a certain region, according to specific processes, and packaged in a specific way.
  • This product starts with milk from cows grazing in the Normandy marshlands on lush grasses growing from rich clay soil near the ocean.
  • Once the cream is separated out (the recipe requires it be a minimum of 35% fat), lactic cultures are added, and it’s left to sit at room temperature for 16-18 hours.
  • This is a traditional process and allows for the cream to thicken, becoming luscious and rich and developing its lactic tang.
  • Crème fraîche is extremely versatile and while it is commonly used in desserts, it can also be used in savory dishes as an alternative to sour cream.
