    WiGal's Note:

    You could make this ahead and gently rewarm it to serve without losing much of its deliciousness. It goes well with with brown rice or a wild rice blend. Go light with the entree (tossed salads are an eternal favorite in France too), and serve something with fruit for dessert. There are many recipes for crème fraîche at Recipe Zaar. Notice that it has tarragon-I love tarragon! I have increased the liquid after looking at Chef#286566 helpful review.

      I scaled this back to 3 serves and we had with rice. The only problem I had was I had to add another cup of liquid (water) but next time I will 3/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup of wine as the extra otherwise all I had was a thick emulsion but once the extra liquid was added the sauce was fantastic. I used dried tarragon 1/3 teaspoon which just gave it enough of a taste without being overpowering and added some broccoli flowerets. Will be trying this again but maybe serve it in vol-e-vents. Thank you WiGal, made for New Kid on The Block.
