Normandy is renowned for excellent quality dairy products. It benefits from a mild and humid coastal climate which encourages abundant all-year-round grass. The herds grazing here therefore have the ideal, natural conditions for producing wonderful rich milk, full of flavour.
Crème Fraiche is indescribably nutty and tangy with a lactic sweetness that begs to be a part of any recipe that simply calls for cream. It adds velvety body to sauces and is a superb topping for fruits and pastries.
AOP – Appellation d’Origine Protegee
The French AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) label is being replaced with the European AOP (Appellation d’Origine Protégée) label. However, these two labels have exactly the same function - The Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée is a French label created to promote quality and traditional production methods in the food sector. Recognised by the European Union since 1992, the label is mainly applied to wines, spirits and dairy products (including cheese) and has been in existence since 1955.
