Cowgirl Creamery • Petaluma, CA
As a respectful nod to the majestic beauty of Mt Tamalpais, located a few miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County, Cowgirl Creamery named its signature cheese Mt Tam. Creamy and elegant, Mt Tam coats your tongue with a rich, buttery flavor that carries an earthy hint of white mushrooms. The triple-cream Mt Tam is made from unblended, organic, single-herd milk from the Straus Family Creamery. (8 oz)
Rustic Bakery • Petaluma, CA
Rustic Bakery provides these sweet and crunchy crisps made with simple, high-quality ingredients–a fabulous accompaniment to artisan cheese. (5 oz)
