St. Angel Triple Cream

I had St. Angel Triple Cream cheese and I love it. Have you all had it? What do you think?

  1. Never heard of it, but sounds delicious! I'll keep an eye out for it.

      It's modeled after St Andre', but not as complex to my palate, and priced a little lower in our market.

    2. I really haven't met many triple creams that I don't like, buttery tasty goodness. It's simple enough to not scare anybody off (good for parties) and tasty enough to not bore the rest who know what good cheese is all about.

      1. I bought some once when my local was out of St. Andre. I liked it, but I like St. Andre more. And St. Andre is cheaper there.

        St. Andre is really my favorite eating (as opposed to grating) cheese. I let it ripen overnight on a counter, then eat it with good bread the day after purchase. It gets this tang around the edges that you can only barely perceive when the cheese is still cold.

          Here's a thread dedicated to St Andre if you have any stories to share.

            Thank you, Melanie. And allow me to say what a nice job I think you've been doing with all the cheese threads. Much appreciated.

              You're welcome, and thank you, Jay. Many of these threads are about classic cheeses and as relevant today as they were originally, thus evergreen. I'm glad that we can look back and see what people thought of them years ago allowing us to gauge whether anything has changed. In truth, it's the mods who have done so much work, moving more than 250 threads or so to this new board so that cheese discussion can be in one place.

        2. If as others indicate it is similar to St. Andre, another mild triple cream, I like it with an orange-fig jam from Croatia, on crispbreads. Yum.

            I'll bet I would love orange-fig jam.

            1. re: Jay F

              I adore fig and orange fig jam with cheese too. Really savory, great texture. Easy to make from scratch too.

          2. This is a recent article about St Angel that highlights some of the ways it differs from St Andre. Maybe I need to try it again.
