Cowgirl Creamery’s St Pat

Cowgirl Creamery's St PatBe on the lookout because Cowgirl Creamery’s St Pat is due in this week!
Each eight-ounce wheel is strikingly wrapped with a local, organic, dark green nettle leaf. Nettle is prized by chefs and foragers for its verdant, bitter bite. St. Pat’s is a case study in contrasts—reminiscent of artichoke and grassy vegetable notes alongside the buttery richness of the late winter/early springtime milk.

St Pat is a small format cheese with a bloomy rind. The flavor profile is rich and creamy with a verdant punch. It pairs well with off-dry, white wines, sweeter wines like a Muscat, and mead.

Cowgirl Creamery crafts premium farmstead cheeses that express the terroir of Marin County. The San Francisco Bay Area is fanatical about cheese, and so much of our local enthusiasm is owed to the two chefs who created Cowgirl Creamery, Sue Conley and Peggy Smith. At Piedmont Grocery, we are huge fans of this Petaluma-based Creamery. They were at the forefront of the American artisan cheese movement, and are still making award-winning cheeses in delicious variety, using milk from nearby dairies.
