food52hotline I can't find creme fraiche at the store. What's a good substitute?

Make you own. I've never purchased it. It's a cup of heavy creme..and a tablespoon or buttermilk. Left out overnight on the counter top. http://www.seriouseats...

It's usually sold in the refrigerated cheese section (not dairy aisle) of most markets. Sour cream would be a good substitute.
I've made this one many times - 2 parts cream to 1 part buttermilk. Stir often and let sit out for 12-24 hours until it's the consistency that you want. http://dashandbella.blogspot...
You could also sub in sour cream or plain yogurt.

I've made it using the same ratio that LLStone suggests. I cover it with a lid and place it in the cupboard overnight. I avoid using ultra pasteurized cream as I believe it inhibits the ability for the cream to thicken. In my opinion there isn't a good replacement for it so learning to make it will empower you to consume it when you choose. Enjoy!

I make it in my yogurt maker, and always have it on hand because there is so much you can do with it:
