The wild bacteria that define this unique, bold, sumptuous triple cream are native to Point Reyes; in fact, Cowgirl Creamery could not make this cheese anywhere else. Aged four weeks and washed with a brine solution that encourages the sunset red-orange rind, Red Hawk captures the true essence of West Marin.
Flavor notes: pungent aromas complement rich, smooth flavor
Cowgirl Creamery is the story of two friends, a baby blue Chevy van and a lifelong love affair with food. Sue Conley and Peggy Smith took a hippie trip to San Francisco in 1976 after finishing degrees at the University of Tennessee. Both established careers in some of San Francisco’s most famous kitchens: Peggy spending 17 years at Chez Panisse, and Sue co-owning Bette’s Oceanview Diner in Berkeley. Two decades, dozens of awards, two creameries, four retail stores and two thousand tons of cheese later, it’s safe to say they’ve earned their 10-gallon hats.
