Quality ingredients make all the difference: artisan prosciutto, homemade jam with fresh figs, sourdough baguette, and our triple cream organic Mt Tam. These tam, ham, and jam crostini are the appetizers you NEED on your holiday menu.
It's an unusual holiday season, but a smaller gathering doesn't have to be short on cheer. We asked Amanda, Cowgirl Creamery Managing Director, about her family holiday traditions, and she shared her Grandma Flo's iconic Cherry Jello Salad (improved with a dollop of our crème fraîche, of course). Check out our latest blog post to hear Amanda's reflections on Christmas cheese, her dad's favorite romcom, and 50s era desserts.
Red Hawk is more than just a table cheese. We love adding wedges to this classic potato gratin. With a bit of heat and lots of cream, its funky flavor softens into something complex, but still cozy. This cheesy, creamy, bubbling dish is a brilliant side for this holiday season.
Mt Tam? Mushrooms? Creamy, luxurious risotto? Need we say more? This festive recipe from Lindsey Eats LA is a warming dish that showcases the best characteristics of our beloved organic triple cream cheese.
Happy Hannukah! Our Pt Reyes Sous Chef (and Cheesemonger Invitational Champion) Jill shares her family recipe for Potato Latkes, with a side of Crème Fraîche and freshly chopped herbs to lighten up this comforting holiday dish. Stop by our Creamery Barn Shop & Cantina this weekend (December 11th -13th) for latkes and our organic, artisan cheese.
Don't fret! Your leftover cranberries need not go to waste. Transform the vibrant, tart berries into a seasonal dessert with the ingredients in your pantry. Nothing fussy, but a spoonful of Crème Fraîche makes all the difference.
This rich, custardy "Tarte de Tam" is an ode to the quiches found in boulangéries across France—buttery, flaky crust encasing rich, eggy custard and bursting with roasted broccolini, black forest ham, and our triple cream, organic Mt Tam. Visit our blog for the full recipe!
Sue's Chicken Breast Stuffed with Fromage Blanc, Mushrooms, and Herbs perfectly suits the brief for a smaller Thanksgiving. Our Organic Fromage Blanc (pictured here) was our very first recipe, and helps keep bone-in, skin on chicken breasts moist while cooking and carries the flavor of the aromatics into the meat.
A dollop of Crème Fraîche adds levity and luxury to this Butternut Squash & Carrot Soup, which is easily adapted to your taste and pantry ingredients. Silky smooth with a touch of ginger spice, this versatile soup is a Cowgirl staple for cold-weather cooking.
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.
