Saint-André cheese

Saint-André cheese is a high (75%) milk-fat ("triple crème") cows' milk cheese in a powdery white, bloomy rind of mould. It has a soft buttery texture, and tastes like an intense version of Brie cheese. Extra double 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 fatty 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 biscuits used should be utterly bland.
