No Fresh Cream in Paris?

Michael Steinmetz | Mar 8, 2004 02:33 AM

It sounds like a joke, but I just moved here and the only crème liquide available seems the UHT (ultra haut temperature) version, clearly inferior to fresh cream. I visited not only supermarkets, but also 2 fromageries (on the versailles market) and was offered crème fraiche which is slightly sour and not what I want. Do French chefs really make ice cream with this? Actually, I am sure calabres will know the answer.
