Seasonal Release: Cowgirl Creamery’s St Pat
Cowgirl’s spring seasonal cheese, St. Pat, starts with organic Jersey milk from Chileno Valley Dairy. Jersey cow’s milk is known for its high butterfat content. Additionally, the
beauty of creating seasonal cheeses is the ability to emphasize the nuanced differences each season’s milk brings. For St. Pat, this means highlighting their rich bloomy wheels with a distinctive green wrap of wild nettle leaves to commemorate spring’s arrival. The nettle leaves are harvested from Fresh Run Farm in nearby Bolinas, and add a smoky artichoke or asparagus flavor to the cheese. Serve St. Pat with a Sémillon/Sauvignon-based white wine or a seasonal Maibock beer.
