Mt Tam Cowgirl Creamery • Petaluma, California 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 Straus Family Creamery. (8 oz)Pair with Costa Esmaraldas Chocolate
Fromage Blanc Cowgirl Creamery • Petaluma, California A simple, fresh, cultured cheese made fabulous by the organic milk of Bivalve Dairy and the gentle hands of our cheesemakers. A dash of sea salt and a dollop of crème fraiche round out the flavor. Use for cooking, baking or simply spreading on warm toast. (5.3 oz)Pair with Meyer Lemon Shortbread & Berry Last Straw Jam
Big Rock Blue Central Coast Creamery • Paso Robles, California In 2010, the folks at Central Coast Creamery began developing Big Rock Blue, a rich, ivory-colored cheese laced with brilliant teal veining and a flavor profile equally as stunning. With a light pressing the cheese maintains a curdy texture reminiscent of fudge, making it ideal for towering on a cheese plate or as a crumbly addition to your favorite salad. Big Rock Blue is mild and approachable yet brimming with hints of fresh butter and salty bacon. (8 oz)Pair with Fig Cake
Costa Esmeraldas Chocolate Bar Dandelion Chocolate • San Francisco, California Dandelion Chocolate is a bean-to-bar chocolate factory that makes single-origin bars made with just cocoa beans and sugar—no added cocoa butter, lecithin, or vanilla. Working directly with the producers who grow, ferment, and dry the cacao they buy, Dandelion sources beans with the highest standard of quality and sustainability while paying a premium price to the farmers. The beans for the Costa Esmeraldas bar come from Freddy Salazar’s estate near Ecuador’s northern coast—resulting in a bar with flavors of fudge brownies with cherry undertones and a hint of toasted nuts. (2 oz)
The Berry Last Straw Jamnation • South San Francisco, California Succulent strawberries + tangy key limes — a perfect balance of sweet + sour sure to tantalize your taste buds. Our seascape strawberries come from a sustainable farm near Watsonville, CA. Certified organic, these berries pack a punch — they're the perfect varietal with a sweet/tart balance we love. Our jam is bursting with whole strawberries for a fresh taste and lush texture. (5 oz)
Meyer Lemon Shortbread Cookie Rustic Bakery • Petaluma, California Buttery shortbread cookies combined with the taste of sweet, tangy Meyer lemons. Simple and classic, these cookies are perfect to serve with tea! (4 oz)
