Personal thoughts and tips from Sadie Kendall,
the creator of
Kendall Farms Crème Fraîche.

"I address myself to the overwhelming majority of chefs/ cooks who lack the time to make classical sauces but desire the elegance and civility that a well-made sauce brings to a meal. A well-made sauce gracing our evening meal is a respite at day's end, our connection to three hundred years of civility and culinary accomplishment. Making dinner is as easy as steaming asparagus, warming Hollandaise, cutting a few shreds of proscuitto, pouring a glass of wine, and sitting down to dine."

"I have only one product to perfect. Chefs must be perfectionists about a wide range of products. My one can help your many."

Kendall Farms Crème Fraîche is ready made beurre blanc, but because it is a natural emulsion, it will not break when added to a pan reduction. It is beurre blanc without the pain."
"As for me, I would like to see a return to the cuisine of Carême. His preference for sauces flavored with herbs suits me well."

"...cook with it sans reserve."
- Saveur, Jan/ Feb, 2002
