Git Along Cowgirl
Just in time for picnic season, Cowgirl Creamery will open its doors in the Chinatown area tomorrow with its sumptuous signature cheeses and a variety of gourmet food goods.
Originating in Point Reyes Station, Calif., the Creamery makes its American Cheese Society award-winning cheese from from pure organic milk, and its creations can be found on the menus of some of the Bay Area's best restaurants, including Zuni Cafe, Chez Panisse and Boulevard. The D.C. shop will feature the store's own cheeses, including the Red Hawk, a striking red-orange cheese and the St. Pat, a seasonal spring cheese that is wrapped in stinging nettles.
The Creamery will also stock its own creme fraiche, fromage blanc and cottage cheese, along with other producers' cheeses, charcuteries, breads, and, eventually, wine. The store will have a special tasting bar where I hope to be a regular and I know I won't be alone. With all of the delectable goodness in one spot, the Cowgirls should have locals leaping onto the Creamery bandwagon in no time.
