St. Andre is a triple crème cows milk French cheese. It is arguably the most popular triple crème cheese in the world.  It is a soft ripened cheese, similar to Brie and Camembert, yet with a higher fat content and a richer, more buttery flavor.  Made in the Pyrénées Mountains, this cheese is produced by enriching cows milk with cream, raising the butterfat content to approximately 75%. Its rind is bright white and velvety in texture. Its interior is soft and creamy with a density similar to a cheesecake. Its flavor is rich and buttery with slight rustic undertones of mushrooms and grass. This is a typical desert cheese due to its sweet, buttery flavor. - A website devoted to cheese education
