Imagine a wonderfully smooth cream cheese, with crumbles of blue cheese, in a little pot. Grab a cracker, remove the hexagonal, resealable lid, and enjoy the spread's tantalizing taste: mild, with a real blue taste.. so yummy, you'll grab the next cracker and slather it on even thicker! You’ll be amazed and delighted by this lovely new cheese. It's no surprise that it received the gold medal at the Concours Général Agricole (General Agricultural Contest) in 2009.
Crafted in the Haute Loire region of France, (just like Saint Agur), Crème de Saint Agur is made from mountain cow’s milk, and it offers a mild blue taste with creamy texture, that appeals to many palates from young to old.
Enjoy it hot or cold! The possibilities are endless with Crème de Saint Agur, and it allows you to easily add a gourmet twist to your favorite recipes - spread it on crusty French breads, spoon it onto baked potatoes, put it on pasta dishes, or use it as a dip for crudities. The Crème de Saint Agur can also be placed in the microwave to make a warm spread (see instructions for proper handling). Pour a full-bodied red wine, like Syrah or Chardonnay, Port when serving this cheese.
Take a look at the interview with master cheese maker Pascal Véron, to find out more about Saint Agur’s cheese making traditions.
