-0500 Someone, I think on this list, said they had a recipe for coeur
a la creme (forgive the lack of diacritical marks), but the recipe
they posted didn't look like the one I have. Though I haven't tried
it, all the recipes from Anne Willan's book Gastronomique (which is
also a beautiful visual and discursive tour de France that will make
even an American homesick) are excellent. Her cremets sound good too.
"Cremets or 'coeur a la creme' is a fresh cheese often moulded in a
heart shape. The most delicate is based on creme fraiche, but soft
cream cheese mixed with double/heavy cream is an acceptable
substitute. It is a summer dessert, at its best with fresh red
berries, sugar and cream. Serves 6 Line the mould with
muslin/cheesecloth. In a large bowl whip the creme fraiche until it
holds soft peaks. Alternatively, beat the double creme with the cream
cheese. In another bowl, whip the egg whites until stiff. Stir about a
quarter of the egg whites into the creme fraiche then fold the mixture
into the remaining egg whites. Spoon the mixture into the mould and
cover with plastic wrap. Set it on a dish and leave to drain in the
refrigerator for at least 8, or up to 36 hours. An hour or two before
serving, turn the cremets out onto a serving dish. Arrange the
raspberries or strawberries around the cremets. Serve it with separate
bowls of sugar or vanilla sugar and the remaining creme fraiche or
creme Chantilly." REC.FOOD.RECIPES ARCHIVES /DESSERTS From archives. Downloaded from Glen's MM Recipe Archive,
