Our friends over at Cowgirl Creamery named their Mt. Tam cheese after nearby Mount Tamalpais, the iconic landmark of the Bay Area and symbol for Marin County, California.
This petite round format has mountains of flavor as memorable as its namesake. The buttery golden color is a lovely contrast to the porcelain white rind. The flavor is mildly earthy, slightly mushroomy. The dense but ultra smooth texture is pure heaven.
"Mild and buttery, with an almost fudgy texture. Just be aware that after one bite, you very well may eat the whole round in one fell swoop. It's happened to me more than once."
