Saint Albray is a flower-shaped cheese that comes from the Aquitaine region of France. Made with pasteurised cow's milk and ripened for 2 weeks, it slices off skilfully with each half-pound cut looking like a "petal". When each petal comes together around a disk, they form a hollow centre similar to a flower.
Invented in 1976, the cheese is a French soft cheese and roughly similar to Camembert cheese, it has the same attributes, but is not quite as strong and more fat than the latter.
Sold by the each, with a minimum weight of 8.0 oz.
