Can't find creme fraiche?
We realise that it's hugely frustrating if you go to make one of Delia's recipes then realise you can't buy a key ingredient locally. So, in an effort to help, here are our suggestions.
Some ingredients are often difficult to locate in some countries – fromage frais, creme fraiche, Greek yoghurt, self-raising flour, Thai fish sauce, etc. If you're having trouble, take a look at our Information Centre, where you'll find a section on alternative ingredients.

We can't, unfortunately, give specific alternatives in recipes as these would, in many cases, alter the end result and Delia would need to re-test all the recipes affected. However, we hope that the above goes some way to help.
