FLORA

 

The newest flower in the Capriole Garden!

At Capriole, our cheeses have always been personal reflections of who we are, where we come from, and what we love. Flora is named for our founder’s grandmother, a country cook and gardener who made cheeses from the milk of a neighbor’s dairy cows, but the name also reflects the unique culture cocktail that defines this cheese.

A delicate, bloomy-rinded round, it is grassy and light as a marshmallow when young. As it ages its flavors intensify, and the texture becomes more dense and creamy, its cream line and ashed rind more pronounced. A perfect 6oz. retail size, it is ripened for 7-10 days and still lovely 3- 4 weeks from the code date.
