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.

Mr. Douglas asked (7-11-16) where he can purchase St.Andre. I suspect that at least one of Canada's large chain supermarkets would carry it. Hannaford's here in Maine sells it, and they extend into NY State, whether to Buffalo, I don't know.
