There’s something really special about packing up a bottle of wine, some crusty bread and the perfect cheese – whether it’s for a sunset picnic, a weekend hike or just relaxing at home with friends and family. Cowgirl Creamery Organic Mt. Tam is the perfect addition to outings as well as to a variety of dishes. Here are some of our favorite recipes for a special cheese like Organic Mt. Tam:

Warm Mt. Tam Cheese Torte

This torte makes an excellent after-dinner cheese course. You could also try it as an hors d'oeuvre to serve with sherry and crackers or thinly sliced baguette. The recipe is easily halved for a smaller group.

Raspberry-Walnut Salad with Mt. Tam Cheese

The slightly nutty, rich flavor of Organic Mt. Tam cheese is an excellent match for sweet raspberries and walnuts.

Mt. Tam Cheese and Turkey Baguette Sandwiches

Need yet another reason to love Cowgirl Creamery's Organic Mt. Tam triple-crème cheese? It makes just about any sandwich a celebration. Here it's paired with turkey, tangy honey mustard and crisp apple on a hearty whole-wheat baguette.

Pasta with Mushrooms, Spinach and Mt. Tam Cheese

Organic Mt. Tam triple-crème cheese helps make a rich sauce for this pasta loaded with classic cheese-friendly flavors from spinach, mushrooms and bacon (if you wish).

Just one taste is all it takes to be roped into using this luscious cheese made from organic cow's milk. Stop by your local store and ask for a taste! Try pairing it with an organic lager like Samuel Smith's or try a fruity, organic Pinot Noir or Syrah. Go Behind the Rind for serving tips, photos and more about this luscious cheese, and follow our Global Cheese Buyer, Cathy Strange on Twitter @WFMCheese.

I have had this cheese many a time, and can say that it's outstanding. Creamy and delicious - I love it on some good bread with a touch of jam on it. I make a killer hors d'oevre with sauteed apple and brie, that this cheese would be perfect for http://tiny.cc/n8afn. Give it a try.
