"Fromage frais" (also known as "fromage blanc", "maquée" or "quark") is a
dairy product, originating from Belgiumand 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
dessertsimilar to yogurt, frequently with added fruit, or used in savorydishes.
