Fromage frais is an unripened, soft fresh cheese. Many different types are stocked by supermarkets and delicatessens, and they all have one thing in common - their light, fresh taste. The fat content, however, varies widely, so check the labels before buying.

  • 2 lb fresh spinach trimmed, or 1 lb packet frozen chopped spinach
  • 4 eggs separated
  • pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 oz butter
  • 1 medium onion skinned and finely chopped
  • 4 oz fromage frais
  • 2 oz Cheddar cheese grated
  • 2 tbsp fresh soured cream


  • Grease a 33 x 23 cm (13 x 9 inch) Swiss roll tin and line with non-stick baking parchment. Set aside.
  • Wash the fresh spinach in several changes of cold water. Place in a saucepan with only the water that clings to the leaves and cook gently, covered, for about
  • 5 minutes, until wilted. If using frozen spinach cook for 7-10 minutes, until thawed.
  • Drain the spinach well and chop finely. Turn into a bowl and cool slightly for about 5 minutes, then beat in the egg yolks and nutmeg, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then fold into the spinach mixture with a large metal spoon until they are evenly incorporated.
  • Spread the mixture in the prepared tin. Bake at 200°C (400°F) mark 6 for 15-20 minutes, until firm.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the onion and fry gently for about 5 minutes, until soft and lightly coloured. Remove from the heat and stir in the fromage frais, cheese and soured cream. Season to taste.
  • Turn the roll out on to greaseproof paper, peel off the lining paper and spread immediately and quickly with the cheese mixture.
  • Roll up by gently lifting the greaseproof paper. Serve hot, cut into thick slices. Accompany with boiled new potatoes.
