Le bar à tartines

Here's another fun one for ya, especially for those expats who remember the pre-Philly cream cheese in France days and what a pain in the butt it was to make a cheesecake back then.

Philadelphia is will be opening a pop-up cream cheese bar in Paris from June 5-9, at 14 rue Jean Jacques Rousseau - 75001 PARIS from 10am to 6pm daily.  They'll have all kinds of sweet and savory goodies to taste, and there will be cooking workshops held each day (advance reservations required).

I was pleased when Philadelphia cream cheese arrived in my Monoprix, even with all its odd flavors. But I do indeed remember using Kiri, or St Moret to make cream cheese frosting or cheesecake, with excellent results.

Although Philly cream cheese is available in my supermarkets, I use St Moret instead. The French version. :)

I need to re-read the ingredients of Philly... make sure there's no #$%& in it... (great, now I am fantasizing about scallion cream cheese with an everything bagel... no bueno!)

I have to say I love St Moret too, I find it pretty much the same, but I'm pleased at the trend of more international things hitting Paris - finally! The Marks and Spencers in Levallois is practically my second home.
