We've updated deviled eggs, a staple of childhood picnics and family reunions. These modern versions are tasty alternatives to the mayonnaise-and-paprika standby.
Peel hard-boiled eggs and cut them lengthwise. Carefully remove yolks; place 4 yolks in each of three bowls. Set whites aside. Mash yolks with a fork.
Add mayonnaise and curry powder to one bowl; mix. Season with salt and pepper.
Place basil and mayonnaise in bowl of a food processor; blend about 2 minutes. Add basil mixture to second bowl of yolks; mix. Season with salt and pepper.
Add creme fraiche, mustard, and cornichons to last bowl of yolks; mix. Season with salt and pepper.
Fill eight reserved egg-white halves with each filling; serve.
