Remembering the Ferry Building

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
We are sad to close a chapter in Cowgirls’ history as we bid farewell to our shop and cafe at San Francisco’s iconic Ferry Building.  We are also grateful to have been part of this community, and to have welcomed visitors there for nearly two decades.  In honor of our time at the Ferry Building, Cowgirl’s Managing Director Amanda Parker shares her own memories of the building, and speaks of what’s to come.

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.

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.

Cheese Fricos with Wagon Wheel or Hop Along

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Looking for a keto-friendly snack or the perfect wine pairing? All you need is grated cheese! We love making these Cheese Fricos with our aged Wagon Wheel or cider-washed Hop Along cheeses. Simply mound grated cheese onto a lined baking sheet and bake until crisp, about 2 to 4 minutes at 375F. Let cool flat on the baking sheet, or shape into a curved tuile or edible cup while warm. 

Rosemary Honey Shrub with Mt Tam

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Sweet, sour, bubbly, and aromatic, this easy non-alcoholic spritz is getting us through #DryJanuary. Paired with our most popular cheese (organic, triple cream Mt Tam), this all-ages beverage is bright and balanced and makes a perfect aperitif or post-dinner treat. This colonial era mocktail was initially prized for its medicinal properties, but we love it as a refreshing contrast to our soft-ripened cheeses.

Mt Tam, Prosciutto, and Fig Jam Crostini

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
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.

Red Hawk Potato Gratin

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
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.
