Dry Jack, Artichoke, and Fennel Salad

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
It’s peak artichoke season in California, and we’re craving bright, textured salads layered with the flavors of spring. Made with all raw ingredients, our co-founder Peggy’s Dry Jack, Artichoke, and Fennel salad is crunchy, briney, and perfectly balanced with fresh herbs, anchovies, and plenty of lemon juice. As an ode to her late Chez Panisse coworker and renowned chef Catherine Brandel, this salad captures the essence of California cuisine. Any hard shaving cheese like Parmigiano or pecorino will do, but for a true American original, we love finishing this salad with Vella Dry Jack. 

Rhubarb & Meyer Lemon Preserves

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Made with only three ingredients—rhubarb, Meyer lemons and sugar—these preserves from our friend @fromheadtotable are pink, rosy sunshine in a jar. The honeyed, sweetness of the rhubarb pairs perfectly with bright, aromatic Meyer lemons. These preserves are a delight served alongside a selection of cheeses, from classic Mt. Tam to Fromage Blanc—but, it really shines with Inverness. The tart, tanginess of the rhubarb and lemon find blissful harmony with the cheese’s delicate lactic acidity and notes of sweet grass and fresh cream.

Penne with Green Garlic Fresh Cheese Sauce

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
This springtime take on mac and cheese is a Cowgirl favorite: our organic Cottage Cheese & Crème Fraîche combine with green garlic and tomatoes for a not-too-rich, creamy sauce. Grate up the bits of hard cheese (we love Wagon Wheel and Parmigiano) in your fridge and pile the penne high, cooking to golden, bubbly perfection.

Cantina Classic Grilled Cheese with Wagon Wheel and Hop Along

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Is there anything more satisfying than a classic grilled cheese? Our trick for the ultimate sandwich is to layer cheeses, like our organic Wagon Wheel and Hop Along. The aged cheese lends flavor and that quintessential stretchy texture — it's the perfect grilled cheese, which is why it's a favorite at our Point Reyes Cantina. How do you grilled cheese? 

Rustic Cheese and Onion Galettes, Two Ways

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
We love a rustic galette not only for its buttery, flaky base, but also for its versatility no matter the season. Here we top with onions, bacon, and any grating bits and bobs like our organic Wagon Wheel or Hop Along, or try a fresh cheese like our creamy Fromage Blanc with herbs and lemon.

Mt Tam & Bulgogi Mandu for Lunar New Year

Posted by Vanessa Chang on
Happy Lunar New Year 🐂🎉 our Marketing Director Vanessa shares her recipe for Korean dumplings, or mandu, with an unusual twist: our organic triple cream Mt Tam! Adding Mt Tam to a traditional filling of beef (or mushroom) bulgogi adds an extra dose of umami and a luxurious sauce to fill the dumpling. We love the textural contrast of pan-fried mandu with thinly sliced steak in the bulgogi, but they can easily be made vegetarian and steamed for a healthier option.
