Saint André is nicknamed “the heavenly cheese” for good reason. A triple crème soft-ripened cheese with velvety smoothness, Saint André hails from the sea-swept village of Coutances in Normandy. The region is luscious with temperate climates, allowing the cows to graze outside for most of the year. Spread this easily over a sliver of toast—and let the sunshine melt happily onto your tongue. More decadent than butter, this is our richest cheese. Once you pierce the soft, velvety rind, the creamy, ivory heart is ready to be spread on a crusty French bread and paired with a light beer or an off-dry dessert wine. With each taste, let the coast come to you.
What is triple crème cheese?
To be called a triple crème, the dry matter requires a butterfat of at least 70%. It requires a higher percent of fat in the dry matter in order to get a buttery cheese, almost as decadent as pure butter. Its cake shape allows the lactic recipe to evolve as the cheese age and the interior body evens out from the outside-in, leaving just a small hear by the end of its life.
Double crème (60%) and triple crème (70%) differ in the amount of fat in the dry matter: a cheese can only be called triple crème if the dry product has a butterfat content of at least 70%. However, rest assured, the final cheese has 46% butterfat: delicious, but still sensible!
What does Saint André taste like?
Saint André is a soft ripened cheese with a buttery texture. Its creamy, rich heart flows appetizingly on your plate, or on toasts, and the cheese’s shape is designed so that more cream can fit inside the rind. The rind has a bloomy taste that both contrasts with and complements the lushness of this cheese.
