Red Hawk Cheese

 

From Cowgirl Creamery in Marin County comes Red Hawk Cheese, an aged triple-crème, cow’s milk cheese with a brine-washed rind. The brine wash is what encourages the development of the red-orange hue for which the cheese is named. The milk for this award-winner (“Best in Show” at the 20th annual conference of the American Cheese Society) is sourced from nearby Straus Family Creamery.
