The Saint Félicien is a soft cheese with a flowery rind originally from Dauphiné. It is a close cousin of another Dauphinois cheese, Saint Marcellin.
It was originally made with goat's milk, but now it is most often made with cow's milk.
Texture: firm but supple
Flavor: slight caprine aroma
Taste: slightly nutty
Invented at the beginning of the 20th century by a Lyonnais creamer to use unsold milk and cream, Saint Félicien's recipe is strongly inspired by that of Saint Marcellin. But it's a bigger and creamier cheese, a softer taste.
