I went to Formaggio Kitchen to get some cheese for Easter brunch. I like to get one cow, one sheep, and one goat cheese. My mother was in town for the holiday, so I picked the Julianna in honor of her, but I’m not going to blame her that I didn’t love it. This is actually the first cheese I rated a two, but that doesn’t mean you won’t like it. My wife actually really likes it and so did the people she works with. It just isn’t for me.

Julianna is produced by Capriole located in Greenville, IN. Aged four to eight months, the texture is firm, particularly for a goat cheese, but what makes it unique is the rind which is covered in herbes de Provence, calendula petals, and safflower petals. The taste of the flower petals is overwhelming and why I rated this cheese a two.

I bought a half wheel (.59 oz) for $22.98. The price per pound was $38.95. That’s a pretty expensive and not worth it, but Capriole also makes a cheese named Old Kentucky Tome which is similar to Julianna without the flowers. I’m looking for it so I can taste the cheese undistracted. I might be alone in my opinion, I see many positive reviews online, and it’s sold out at a number of online shops so someone likes it. Maybe it’s you.
