fromage blanc

creamy fresh cheese

Fromage blanc, France

Made in northern France and Belgium, this white cheese made of whole or skimmed milk looks like fromage frais but is sold when fermentation has been halted. It has a slight citrus flavour.

It’s often used in desserts or savoury dishes, flavoured with herbs, or served as a dessert with fruit or jam.
