Flora Danica

I like to use either Mesophilic or Flora Danica culture to make French Cream Cheese which I later use to make my Cream Cheese Cake. The Flora Danica culture gives the French Cream Cheese & later my cheese cake a more taste pleasing flavor. Both cultures are nice but the Flora Danica just gives the cheese a special uniqueness. I've enjoyed shopping at New England Cheese Supply Co. since 1982 & my best buy was Cheesemaking Made Easy. When the second book Ricki wrote came out, I grabbed it! Both books are my Cheese Bibles & go to sources even though I have bought other cheese books. Thanks for making me the most sought after person for gatherings with my Cheese Cake! I have convinced a lot of family & friends that goat milk, goat cream, goat cheeses, goat milk soaps, chevron, & all things goats can produce is pretty awesome. Thanks again, Glo. the Goat Lady

Perfect Coulommiers every time

I use Flora Danica culture to get perfect Coulommiers every single time. We like this cheese on French toast & bagels (especially with a little maple sugar added) when it's fresh. As a slightly aged cheese, with herbs added, it pairs wonderfully with crackers and summer sausage. Coulommiers is one of our very favorite cheeses and I rely on this Flora Danica starter to get me there.

Flora Danica

I only use this for my aged bloomy rind goat cheeses. It gives a great flavor and makes a fabulous cheese that all my clients love. I use it with neige (penicillin candidum) and geotrichum molds, age it in my cave for 7 - 10 days. The older the cheese gets, the better.
