Cheese from heaven
One of my favorite brie-style cheeses is St. Andre. It is a soft ripened triple cream from France. It is made from cows milk and enriched with pure cream. That gives this cheese a very soft buttery texture. It is lush, creamy and ripe, and goes best with a bland cracker.
When pairing beverage with it choose a rose wine or an ale. It is so rich and buttery that it can make a white wine seem sour.
This is not a cheese that you can normally find at you local supermarket. Whole Foods Market is a great resource for cheese and other gourmet food, www.wholefoodsmarket.com. Or you can order it online at www.cheesesupply.com. Reserve a spot for it on your cheese tray next time you have guests over and I promise you will not be disappointed over this melt in you mouth cheese.
