Lauren Sloss takes us inside Cowgirl Creamery’s original location in Point Reyes and provides examples on how to pair their cheeses. For example:
With a texture similar to cream cheese, Cowgirl’s fromage blanc has crème fraîche mixed into it, lending it a similar tanginess. Far smoother on the palate than a traditional cream cheese, Michael notes that often herbs like dill and tarragon with lemon are mixed in for a delicately flavored sandwich spread. Another decadent option: a cheesecake made with fromage blanc, crème fraîche, mascarpone, ricotta, and a little lemon.
Pairings: Michael recommends spreading the fromage blanc on chocolate shortbread with a squeeze of lemon. You can’t go wrong with Kika’s Treats Cocoa Nib Chocolate Shortbread, or mix up your flavors even more with Clairesquares’ dark chocolate caramel shortbread.
