Christina and the Cowgirls

This is the first The Red, White and Food entry and I am so excited to share Christina McGehee and her wonderful store, Boulevard Bread with you...although to most of you, they are already well-known friends. Christina and her team embrace and embody everything good, no...great about food. From the scrumptious breads, coffee and sweets to start your morning to the evening dinner to go, everything is made from scratch with an eye on both the palate and the environment and a commitment to support local farmers and food producers. As sweet people usually do, Christina led me to some other folks I was so eager to meet.

While every day is a great day at Boulevard, Tuesday is really "grate"'s "Cheese Day". Check out the pix above; look at the treasures just waiting for you....all with a Cheese Day special discount, too! The case is gorgeous! In the magazine Culture, an ad for a certain cheese caught my eye. I had seen some wheels of it in shops in New York, but given my glitch-loaded trip home last time, I am really glad I didn't try to stuff some in my suitcase. The brand is Cowgirl Creamery and hands down and cheese aside, they have the cutest homepage ever! Makes me want to saddle up and trot on over there to meet them and see all they have done to create their fabulous cheese. But, I don't have to because right before my eyes, in Boulevard's case, was the cheese I wanted to try...


From the Cowgirls themselves, here is their description of Red Hawk....

Cowgirl Creamery captures the essence of West Marin with its Red Hawk, a triple-cream, washed-rind, fully-flavored cheese made from organic cow milk from the Straus Family Dairy. Aged four weeks and washed with a brine solution that tints the rind a sunset red-orange, Red Hawk won Best-In-Show at the American Cheese Society's Annual Conference in 2003 and a Gold Ribbon and 2nd Best-in-Show in 2009.

Here's my description: Yum!
There is nothing more fitting for The Red, White and Food than a delicious store done the right way and this wonderful, made-with-love cheese available in it. I can't wait to dig into that cheese case again! The entire store is a treasure. Thanks Christina, Boulevard Bread and the Cowgirls for all you do to keep our food good, clean and fun.
