{French Food Facts} The Fontainebleau dessert story


The Fontainebleau is a delicious and airy dairy dessert. Named from the city Fontainebleau, the dessert was born in the XVIIIth century. One says that during transportation from Fontainebleau to Paris, the cream cheese was beaten by the horse-drown carriage movement on the cobbled streets. And so it created this singular dessert half cottage cheese half Chantilly cream. Since then, the dessert is popular in Fontainebleau. It also delights some Parisians and around inhabitants.

Fruits, jams, honey and other treats goes really well with Fontainebleau. A dessert you might find in dairy shops in Fontainebleau and around or some rare high range shops in Paris.
