St. André

Deserving of its reputation as "the heavenly cheese," St. André might have an angelic façade, but there is no doubt, that it's actually straight-up sinful. Enchanting and celebratory, inside the downy rind you'll find a rich center that adds up to 70% butterfat. Seventy percent: a magic number that tells you this is the cheese for an opulent life, an every day delight and decadence. From the coast of France to your table, St. André is lavish and rich enough for the most special occasions, but merits a place on your daily menu.

ORIGIN

Ile de France St. Andre CheeseCrafted in Coutances, in the Normandy region of northwestern France, St. André is a pasteurized cow's milk cheese, covered with a satiny, edible rind. Soft-ripened, the downy white outer layer offers a complex counterpoint to the wildly rich and silky center. As dense as pure butter and with the richest of flavors, the tongue-pleasing salty tang derives from the ocean air blowing through the paturages of the Normandy coast. Produced in the shadow of the mystical island of Mont Saint-Michel, St. André cheese is just as breathtaking as the landscape of the surrounding Cotentin Peninsula.

FEATURED PAIRING

St. Andre & Red Hook IPA ( American India Pale Ale)

St. André is a soft ripened cheese that's very rich and has a full, buttery taste. Red Hook IPA is a true English-style bitter. The distinctive style was developed by British brewers in the 1700s. They created the sturdy beer to survive long sea journeys to distant colonies. The hoppy favor lends a great deal to the buttery taste of the St. André cheese, giving them both a subtle, nutty flavor. To keep this combination simple, serve the St. André sliced with some crusty French bread, and offer frosted mugs of the Red Hook.

Hi Diane, thanks for commenting! We're so glad you like our St. Andre! A little goes a long way with this decadent cheese! It's always best, of course, to check with one's doctor before making any significant changes to one's diet, but as with many things: everything in moderation!

I love to pair IPAs with a rich triple cream brie, but may I suggest that you do not serve the beer in a frosted mug... ipa's are best severed at cellar temps; just as cheese derives it's maximum Flavour from proper temps; so too does beer. if you must have it cold... fine, but frosted mugs do nothing but damage to your beer.

And I also have Byerly's near me...near enough to go check out if I can find St. Andre cheese. I SO want some. At the moment, my fav is brie..

I love St.Andre. I buy it at Trader Joe's once a week. My husband also finds the cheese great and he enjoys it with caviar.

Thank you for this wonderful Triple Creme! It has allowed me to share Brie with some of my friends who had never had a Brie they liked. Grandma in MN you can find it at Byerlys, Target, and most of the grocery stores now. It is also at Costco! To me it would be worth a membership just to buy my cheese! I am excited to serve this Saturday with my wine club. I will be pairing it with caramelized onions and a balsamic glaze, as well as a cherry puree for another taste.

I recently bought this cheese at DeLallo in Jeanette PA, for just under $12/pound. Worth every penny ... easily the greatest brie I've ever had, and I'm a total snob when it comes to these kinds of things. Wonderful melted, or on a simple sandwich (or, better yet, melted on a simple sandwich). I try not to think about what this is doing to my cholesterol!
