The Cowgirl Creamery is housed in a vintage restored barn. In addition to a cheese counter for tasting and buying, there is also a Cowgirl Cantina, a deli and wine shop perfect for picking up the fixings for a Point Reyes picnic.
Nutty Gruyère is de rigueur for a classic Swiss fondue. Hard apple cider, cider vinegar, and Calvados (apple brandy) give this great version added interest. Kielbasa, apples, and bread are served alongside for dipping— but potatoes are also good. Just steam some new potatoes or fingerlings until cooked but not falling apart, and cut them into wedges. Also, any sausage—not just kielbasa—will do. We like andouille or chicken and apple sausage, too.
