Fromagina Starter Culture
Fromagina starter culture was developed by Bob & Ricki Carroll. It is a cross between Fromage Blanc and Mascarpone. Fromagina is excellent in cooking or served by itself as a delightfully, creamy spread. This is an easy cheese to start with, we highly recommend it for both beginners and advanced cheesemakers alike.

No, really, you want this.
This culture yielded a cheese with an unctuousness, freshness of flavor, and utter lack of chalkiness that sets it apart from the Fromage Blanc, Creme Fraiche, and Buttermilk cultures (all of which I've used and will re-order, and all of which are delicious; it's not that this one's *better,* so much as that it's *different,* and not redundant). And that's with pasteurized cold-stored whole milk; I can't wait to try it with fresh farmstand milk. It's almost terrifyingly perfect with fresh berries. As I write this it's June and the native strawberries are in; if you're in New England, you not only want this, you probably want it now.
Cheese for X-mas!!!
I just wanted to thank you SOOOO much for the great products you sell, the directions are great too and sales people so accommodating. I first learned about you at the Hancock Shaker Village Museum in MA. I had been wanting to make cheese since before I went on vacation in the town nearby, Becket. But when I got to the Shaker Village I bought a cheese and yogurt book. Later when I went to the cheese making area of the village, the actors gave your catalog to me and the rest of the vacation and all year until last X-mas all I asked for or talked about was cheese! Finally Xmas came and I got the Basic Hard Cheese Kit and the Fromagina Culture. I have done the Fromagina so far and it was sooooo good. PS I am 12.
kosher and Halal
I was wondering if your fromagina have kosher and or halal certificates Regards Barry
Light and yummy
This is my favorite soft cheese. Super easy to make and very quick too. I use whole Jersey milk, and allow the cream to separate for two lovely layers - the cream makes a smooth rich buttery layer, and the milk makes a lighter, brighter tasting layer - both are perfect for dipping or spreading on toast.
Another simple and easy cheese to make - that is if you use this culture!
