Saint André Heavenly Triple Crème
Saint André Heavenly Triple Crème is a luxurious cheese. Its softness reaches new heights with the process of triple crème cheesemaking.
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.
What to pair Saint André Heavenly Triple Crème with?
Saint André is delicious with cold meats and sausages. Its buttery texture also goes well with salads, especially if they contain crunchy ingredients, such as croutons or peanuts. Finally, you may like the surprising combination of Saint André with Champagne: the bubbly lightness in your glass will create a delicious contrast with the creamy goodness on your plate.
