Mini Mt Tam Spanish Tortillas with Romesco Sauce

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Fluffy Spanish tortilla, layered with romesco sauce and fresh herbs, makes an indulgent pedestal for our triple cream Mt Tam. With flavors of cultured butter and roasted mushrooms, our beloved Mt Tam lends itself to the sharp, smoky sauce made from roasted red pepper and almonds. Served at room temperature, the tortilla can be cut into bite-sized pieces for easy tapas or sandwiched between crusty bread for a decadent bocadillo.

Compound Butter

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Grilling this weekend? Don't forget the compound butter! From a juicy rib eye with blue cheese butter to grilled corn with shallot & parsley butter, we love using using sustainable dairy to bring out the best of the farmers market. Once you've got the technique down, feel free to experiment by adding your favorite flavors and aromatics. Red Hawk & chive butter on your baked potato? Mt Tam & mushroom butter on your burger? The possibilities are endless.

Crookneck Squash & Corn Soup

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Crookneck squash and corn give this velvety soup its sunshine glow. Rather than grating cheese atop, we like to place a single slice of Humboldt Fog from our sister creamery Cypress Grove on top. With its ash-ripened exterior and cakey center, it's bold, bright, and brilliant for summer. If you can't find the classic goat cheese, a slab of our organic Mt Tam or Fromage Blanc makes a decadent topper.
