Tour of Cowgirl Creamery

Cowgirl Creamery tourI’ve been wanting to write about my tour of the Cowgirl Creamery for a while now, but now I can refer you to William Wong‘s account of his tour over at sfgate.com. This was a pleasant surprise since Bill is both a great writer and friend.  Some quotes and link to full story below:

Cowgirl’s “tour” is actually a misnomer. It’s more like a seminar or tutorial about cheese-making followed by a tasting.
Cowgirl’s web site says this “tour” is a 25-minute presentation, followed by a tasting. Our “tour” lasted about 90 minutes — an informative talk by Michael Zilber, retail manager of Cowgirl, and a tasting of Cowgirl’s repertoire of cheeses: four fresh and four aged varieties. Man, were they delicious! Yes, we bought one variety to take home.

… if you have a Friday available, go to Pt. Reyes Station to take Cowgirl’s “tour” inside a restored barn, where you will learn about cheese-making, see it being made, try a hand yourself at part of the process, and taste some scrumptious cheeses, to boot.
