Quick Reference

Smetana (or smitane, the French version of its name) is sour cream. Until recently it was familiar in Western gastronomy only in smetana sauce, a savoury sauce made with sour cream, onions, and white wine, but over the past two decades it has become relatively widely available in its own right in British supermarkets. The term is of Russian origin.
