Saint Albray cheese
Saint Albray is a cheese which comes from the Aquitaine region of France.
Invented in 1976, the cheese is similar to Camembert cheese, it has the same attributes, but is not quite as strong.
Made with pasteurised cows' milk, this popular cheese is ripened for 2 weeks and formed into a shape not unlike the head of a flower with each "petal" forming 250 g of cheese. The "petals" are formed around a disk, when removed, it creates a hollow centre giving the impression of the centre of the flower.
Saint Albray slices beautifully and when the whole wheel is displayed, this cheese makes an attractive centrepiece to a table. Saint Albray is mild and moist, but still retains its body despite its creamy nature.
