About Saint André cheese Edit
Wikipedia Article About Saint André cheese on Wikipedia
Saint-André cheese is a high (75%) milk-fat ("triple crème") cow's milk French cheese with a soft buttery texture in a powdery white bloomy skin of mold, like an intense version of Brie. Extra heavy cream is added to the cheese during manufacture. A traditional wheel of Saint-André is smaller and shaped higher than the familiar flat wheel of Brie. Saint-André is so fat it can make a white wine taste sour and metallic: a crust of baguette and a light beer or simply a slice of pear are often suggested as better complements. Any cracker used should be utterly bland.
