Is there an Italian equivalent for creme fraiche?

Christina D | Nov 21, 2005 04:12 PM

I took a cooking class last week and the teacher made a french beggar's purse with an herbed crepe, lobster meat, shallots and creme fraiche. For Christmas Eve, I thought about making an italian version using some shrimp, prosciutto, maybe a little spinach and a player to be named later (this is where the creme fraiche equivalent comes in). It would be served over a warm, broken tomato vinaigrette (or maybe a coulis, haven't decided yet) and maybe a little Jackson Pollack pesto.

Any thoughts?
