I thought you were talking about vaseline.
Well, at the beginning, I told my gf that we needed to buy "krem" for the recipe. She laughed and explained the difference of vocabulary. Of course that evening I massaged her body with krem. And with smietana another day. She enjoyed the combination of hands and tongue ;-).
creme fraiche is known not to curdle while heated (contrary to Polish sour cream) - that's why it is widely used in French cuisine as an ingredient in sauces and soups (and in many other recipes)
Exactly! And that's the problem I had while cooking in Poland, besides the difference of taste.
