Making Crème Fraîche at Home, a Follow-Along Virtual Event (FAVE)
Learn to make delicious and decadent crème fraîche at home by following along with us in this live virtual event workshop. Crème fraîche is creamy, delicious and so versatile in the kitchen. You can do anything with it from garnishing tacos, topping desserts, whipping into whipped cream, accenting soups and so much more.
After showing you how to make it, including tips, tricks and some great cheese science, we'll show you how to enjoy it!
We'll send you a list of everything you'll need ahead of time as well as a link for purchasing any of the harder-to-find items. The aim is to keep it fairly simply so you don't have to stress about finding unusual items.
This is an (optional) two-part series:
Take one day or both but they pair together perfectly so we recommend both. If you'd like to take just the Crème Fraîche class you can do so here.
Tickets: Please purchase a ticket for each member of your household who will be joining us. Choose "One Guest" for the first person and "Add-On Guest" for any additional people in your party. Children under the age of 18 are free. (Did you know our backers on Patreon attend these classes for free at the $25/month level? Join here.)
To follow along in this class you'll need to have on hand:
- 2 quarts heavy (whipping) cream with no additives
- 1 pinch Mesophilic cheesemaking culture like MM100, Fresh Chèvre culture, Flora Danica or 1 TBSP fresh, un-opened, cultured buttermilk
- Small pot (enough to hold the cream)
- Thermometer (must register below 100°F)
- Jar to hold the finished crème fraîche (pint-sized Mason jars are perfect!)
Get all our 1-hour events for free by backing us on Patreon at the $25 level.
