Ferry Building Throwback: San Francisco Egg Cream

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Today (April 10th) marks our last day in the Ferry Building, and we're throwing it back with a Sidekick Café classic from our founders Peg & Sue: The San Francisco Egg Cream. Showcasing Straus Family Creamery organic milk and Recchiuti's chocolate sauce, this warm-weather quencher is a foamy, refreshing taste of the Bay.

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.

Ricotta-Asparagus Soufflé

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Our Ricotta-Asparagus Soufflé is light and creamy while still being hearty enough for those lingering cool spells. Ricotta adds milky body, but the real trick is using fresh eggs, which ensure the whites get extra fluffy. Don't have ricotta? Try swapping in our Organic Fromage Blanc, which brightens up springtime dish. 

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.

Fromage Blanc Spreads

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Move over cream cheese, there's a new spread in town and it's made from organic, pasture-based milk without fillers, stabilizers, or preservatives. Our Fromage Blanc is tangy and luscious–the perfect vehicle for your favorite spices and seasonings. From roasted garlic & herbs to chocolate-espresso, we love these quick-and-easy dips for snacks, sandwiches, and effortless entertaining.

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.

Truffle Grilled Cheese from our Ferry Building Sidekick Café

The combination of black truffle and Mt Tam is a luxurious and indulgent take on a classic grilled cheese. It is a celebration of mushrooms. Mt Tam carries flavor notes of white button mushroom which meld...

Mt Tam Tartine with Radishes & Herb Salad

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
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.
