Thomas J. Story
Total time 30 mins
Yield 6 servings
Fromage blanc is like sour cream, only thicker and silkier—and it's terrific with strawberries. In the book, we show how to make your own, but you can find fromage blanc at most well-stocked supermarkets.


  • 1 1/4 cups (about 9 oz.) fromage blanc
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 pts. strawberries, preferably small
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Finely shredded zest of 1 1/2 lemons

  4. Drizzle warm honey over berries and fromage blanc. Top each bowl with 1 or 2 reserved berries.
