This European-style fresh cheese is light, silky and easy to spread. It substitutes nicely for chévre and is a lower-calorie alternative to cream cheese. A chef favorite, Fromage Blanc is equally at home in both sweet and savory recipes.
Bellwether Farms Fromage Blanc also has more character. It’s a bit salty and tart but overwhelmingly projects natural dairiness. I eat spoons of it right from the carton and spread it on bagels. –Patricia Unterman
