Fromage Blanc Parfait with Honey & Walnuts

• 04 August 2009



































One of my favorite parts of being here is having so many uncommon-in-the-US ingredients at my fingertips. I've searched hi + lo over all of Utah for fromage blanc and have yet to find it anywhere. Yet, the little grocery store in the French countryside has more than a few brands of fromage blanc. And it's not expensive either, which is of course a bonus.

If you are lucky enough to live in San Francisco (Cowgirl Creamery carries fb), New York, or anywhere else they offer fromage blanc, give this little treat a try. Simply layer fromage blanc, walnuts, and high-quality honey (this is important as there are only 3 ingredients) together for a simple dessert. It only takes 5 minutes to assemble, saving you lots of time in the kitchen; that is, once you've rounded up the ingredients!

  2. You seem to be having so much fun with all your frenchy treats.

    Maybe when you leave your house for vacationers, you should leave a little booklet in your fabulously remodeled kitchen of all the recipes, including where to find the ingredients so that you guest can create and enjoy all the wonderful things you keep posting while they stay.

    Wish it was me... Good luck with the rest of the remodel!

  4. This looks so good. After 4 years in California (unfortunately a little bit too far from the Cowgirl Creamery), I still miss french food a lot. Especially all the dairy products. I am glad I get to see you enjoy them!

  5. I do the same thing with greek yogurt and it is very good. It's especially yummy with whole milk yogurt but pretty tasty with 0% too.
