$13.50/1 each

Chef Lippe’s Saint André Cheese. Calvados, France. $10 slice. Hand cut. 8oz approximate weight. Weight might vary. Tasting Saint André is like biting into a cloud. Saint Andre is a triple crème cow's milk cheese produced in Vire, Calvados, in the Normandy region of northwestern France. It has a high fat content (75%) due to addition of heavy cream to the original paste, making it dense, buttery and rich. The rind is covered with a velvety and powdery bloomy mold while the inside is ivory white in color. The flavors of the satiny, edible rind follow bright tangy fresh and creamy notes of a rich, slightly salty and decadent middle. Perfect for enjoying with a bubbly prosecco, a cava, some festive champagne, a sweet Lambrusco and if you can find it, definitely a crisp Rosé d'Anjou.
