Kentucky Rose is many things, but at its core it is a very simple gently pressed farmhouse-style cheese with a tiny kiss of roquefort, just to give it a floral and earthy note on the rind. Added cream creates a level of decadence that carries the experience from start to finish, but somehow amid all of the that buttery goodness this cheese remains light and airy. The briny finish is longer than you expect.
Well earning of its popularity, Kentucky Rose is named for Mary Rose Mattingly, the original cheesemaker, marketer, farmers market minivan to Louisville schlepper and inspiration on many long, hard, earlier days when it was difficult to soldier on with our duties on the farm and in the creamery. Her constant reminder that this business is about people and relationships has become one of the guiding principles at Kenny's Farmhouse Cheese. There is nothing to compare this cheese to, and like Mary Rose, Kentucky Rose is truly one of a kind!
