"Easy, perfect every time and so delicious!"
–Marilyn, Happy Cheese Maker
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.

Fromagina is a great cheese to use with my raw goats milk. It’s very convenient as it requires no rennet and sets up a little softer than chèvre. This makes it perfect to use as ricotta or cream cheese I like to add herbs de provance to it for a herby spread. It’s very adaptable. I’ll be buying more of this culture for sure.
The culture works great and the results taste great! I make dips (savory and sweet) and mix in some jam for a breakfast treat. I use a 14x14inch almond nut bag when draining it—makes for easy cleanup!
THE BEST KIND OF REVIEWS: One of my customers remarks with her first tasting of Rockin Triple L’s “Pearl’s Dream” “This is absolutely STUPENDOUS”!!!! I learned a NEW Word and gained a Very Valuable Customer!!!
This is a great soft cheese that can be eaten without the aging process I mixed in the French herbs and it's delicious. My wife really likes it too.
This cheese is quite simple to make and tastes great. It's smooth and creamy with a mild flavor. We love to eat it with crackers. Additionally, I will add apple pie or pumpkin pie spice to taste. Sweeten with honey or sugar for a real treat on graham crackers or ginger snaps.
