Crème Fraiche, a sumptuous cultured cream product available at Pacific Cheese, is one of the most versatile ingredients in the kitchen for chefs. Here, crème fraiche surrounds layers of thinly sliced fresh potatoes creating a rich and creamy sauce. This hearty dish is perfect to serve with a slice of ham and a glass of white wine.
