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.
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.
Upgrade your hot dogs with Mt Tam, savory bacon jam, and tart pickled cherries with this casually decadent recipe from @thebraise. Buttery, rich Mt Tam melts with the heat of the frankfurter, balanced perfectly with bright, crunchy condiments and a toasty brioche bun. Whether you make the accompaniments yourself (recipes included) or pick them up from your local specialty shop, these loaded hot dogs will make you forget all about the ketchup.
Life is all about balance. Eat your vegetables...but don't forget the cheese. This simple tartine (a fancy word for an open-faced sandwich) is made with Acme Bread Walnut Levain, red radishes, and a lightly dressed herb salad–the perfect counterpoint to our rich, organic triple cream. Adjust the greenery to whatever's in season (or in the garden) and add a punch of acidity and flakey salt to turn up the flavor. With notes of cultured butter and mushrooms, Mt Tam sings on this quick-and-easy toast.

This winter-forward salad—a vibrant mix of chicories, Fuyu persimmons and fennel, dressed in a bracing apple cider vinaigrette—is the perfect vehicle for a fromage-loaded Mt Tam Cheese toastie. Broiled until just melted and topped with a drizzle of honey and flaky salt, this ooey, gooey topper finds harmony with the bitterness of the greens and the slightly sweet persimmons.
