Terry, did PippaG answer your question, or did you want to know about something else?

A french sour cream (that's not quite as sour as American sour cream). It has a really rich tangy taste, and even a little bit pretty much makes anything (lentils, mashed potatoes, sauces, soups, a spoon) better. You can find it a specialty food shops but I've also seen it creeping into regular supermarkets.
