Cheese + Chocolate Collection

Sue Conley and Peggy Smith founded Cowgirl Creamery in the early 1990s, with the mission to help West Marin’s farms and dairies get their delicious products into the hands of the finest local chefs. Nearly 30 years later, Cowgirl Creamery is an icon in the industry. In 2010, Sue and Peggy were inducted into the prestigious Guilde des Fromagers. They have both also received James Beard Awards for “significant and lasting achievements and contributions to the food and beverage industry for ten or more years.”

The two most important food groups, together in an indulgent combination. Triple cream organic Mt Tam, our versatile semifirm Wagon Wheel, Dark Chocolate Honeycomb & Cowgirl Dark Chocolate Bar, stunning Raspberry Preserves, and Vanilla Shortbread from our friends at Rustic Bakery. Mix-and-match cheese & chocolate for a perfect bite!

Instructions / Storage

  • Cheeses ship with gel packs, gel packs may thaw in transit
  • Expect cheese to arrive at room temperature
  • Upon arrival please refrigerate
  • Cheese is stable at room temperature, however, it is best stored in the refrigerator
  • For optimum enjoyment, please enjoy your cheese within 1-2 weeks. Soft cheeses should be enjoyed sooner
  • Chocolate can be stored in a cool, dry place at 70º or less for up to 1 year.

To Serve

  • Remove your cheese from the refrigerator at least an hour before serving, unwrap it, and place it on a cheese board or butcher paper
  • Cover with an inverted bowl. This allows the cheese to breathe and protect it while it comes to room temperature.

There is Mold on My Cheese!

  • Traditional cheeses are often made with natural rinds that display a variety of colorful molds and bumpy textures. These rinds protect the cheese as it ages while contributing to its unique flavor profile
  • Bacteria and mold are essential components of cheese. When cut and wrapped, molds and surface oils can develop on the face of the cheese. Simply scrape the surface with a knife to remove before serving.

This is so amazing. There are so many restaurants and stores on here that have extreme meaning to my family and remind us of my passed father so this was such a beautiful gift to be able to take us back to these moments. All from family trips that we can’t just go back to every day. This makes it so much easier to feel connected to these places again. Thank you so much for this.
