Fromage Blanc
Fromage Blanc
A traditional, European-style cheese. Tangy, buttery and easy to spread, it’s a tasty alternative to cream cheese and chévre. This cheese is one of the most versatile ingredients available to the home chef. Fromage Blanc is at its best when used as an ingredient in appetizers, main courses and even desserts. It is fabulous with sauces, herbs and spices, and specialty breads. If you’re presenting Fromage Blanc on a cheeseboard, whip the cheese and serve in a ramekin. Then drizzle with honey and top with toasted nuts.

*We’ve got a little secret to share: Fromage Blanc is naturally lower in fat than other cheeses (1/4 tub is equal to two Weight Watcher points). We had to tell you this, because the taste would never give it away!

Crème Fraîche
Crème Fraîche
This classic, French-style cultured cream has a rich, nutty flavor with an appealing tart edge. A basic pantry item in French kitchens, it is an ingredient used by fine cooks in many cuisines. Pour over fruit, whip into soups, stir into sauces. Créme Fraîche never curdles while cooking.

Whole Jersey Milk Ricotta
Whole Jersey Milk Ricotta
We do not use any vinegar when making this ricotta. We culture the milk and let the acidity develop naturally for many hours until it is ready to start the heating process. Making ricotta this way requires constant attention--once heating begins we stand at the vat watching for just the right moment to stop stirring and let the curds form. This gives it the most delicate texture and incredible flavor of any ricotta on the market.

Whey Ricotta
Whey Ricotta

Whey from our aged cheeses (both cow and sheep) goes into making our ricottas. Both are creamy with a sweet, delicate flavor that must be featured. Drained in the Italian baskets for this purpose, it is never mushy or grainy.
