Re: cream or creme fraiche?

In Kipa you can get what they call Krema - it's in a box/carton near the milk cartons (not the chiller cabinet). It's not bad with fruit.

Re: cream or creme fraiche?

Sorry but there is no creme friache in Turkey and no fresh cream,there is alternatives to fresh cream but not for creme fraiche!
I asked similar question last year and cound'nt get either in Kipa OR Metro in bodrum.try the search engine
Hope someone comes along and proves me wrong though,I also like to use fresh cream in some of my speciality dishes.
What I do is bring some over in a cooler bag and freeze it when I arrive and no problems.

Re: cream or creme fraiche?

It's very sweet so don't know how good it will be if you are cooking a savoury recipe. To me, it tastes a bit like a thick whipped cream like you get in squirty cans over here. Maybe you could try the yoghurt?

Re: cream or creme fraiche?

the following is a reply i got from another helpful member on the forum
The small cartons of Krema mentioned can be odd. You open the carton, some watery stuff may come out then a big lump of solid cream then some that looks like single cream. You would need to empty it out and mix it together, it whips up well. I don't mind longlife but some people don't like he taste.

There is nothing here like the fresh cream you get in the UK, I've looked in every supermarket I go in. I use Kaymak which is fresh (found near the yogurts) and very thick cream (almost like clotted).

Put it this way, if you liked cream in your coffee and tried adding krema it would sit and float, I've tried. It's good for a carbonara etc though.

Re: cream or creme fraiche?

Yes Krema is a good substitute for sweet or savory dishes and also whips up thick, I have used it on scones and on a banoffee Pie as well as pasta sauces and curry's. The cheapest you will find is at A101.

Re: cream or creme fraiche?

I take my coffee with cream and have slowly got used to krema. I've tried several brands and, as thingthong says, some are very thick and need to be mixed well before use. I've found that the Pina brand is best in coffee as it seems thinner than the others, but it's not so good for cooking.

Creme fraiche? The nearest I've got is suzme yoghurt mixed with kaymak, the taste is a little different but for sweet recipes it's not bad with a little extra sugar; not so good for savouries as it splits.

Re: cream or creme fraiche?

I also think kaymak is excellent double/clotted cream
