Fromage frais


Fromage frais

"Fromage frais" (also known as "fromage blanc", "maquée" or "quark") is a dairy product, originating from Belgium and north of France. The name literally means "fresh cheese" (with "fromage blanc" meaning "white cheese").

Pure "fromage frais" is virtually fat free, but cream is frequently added to improve the flavor, which also increases the fat content, frequently to as high as 8 percent of total weight.

"Fromage frais" can be served either as a dessert similar to yogurt, frequently with added fruit, or used in savory dishes.
