Chantilly Cream

Chantilly is a sweetened whipped cream, flavored with vanilla or brandy. It takes its name from Chantilly, a medieval French market town just north of Paris, famous for its whipped cream. Chantilly cream and whipped cream are interchangeable when called for in a recipe (they are made exactly the same, one just sounds fancier!).


You can use either plain heavy cream in this recipe or crème fraiche. Because crème fraiche has a slightly tangy taste, it really balances the sweetness keeping the whipped cream from being too sweet. Run the sugar through a food processor or blender to make it superfine, this will allow to to be dissolved completely when whipping up the mixture.
