It’s safe to say we’ve eaten our share of Cowgirl Creamery’s delicious cheeses at OITF events in Marin, but we’ve never actually done a dinner with them. Cowgirl Creamery was one of the first places we ever approached about doing a dinner when we moved beyond our home of Santa Cruz, California – all the way back in 2003. We are thrilled to finally have the opportunity to set the table together! Sue and Peggy started out making fresh cheeses for their original Pt. Reyes store with milk from nearby dairies. One of them is the Tresch family’s ranch – 2500 acres in the rolling hills of western Sonoma County where the family tends 750 Holstein, Jersey, and Jersey-Holstein cross breed milking cows. Generations of Tresches have been in the California dairy business since the 1870s, when they emigrated from Switzerland. In 1996, their cows became the second certified organic herd in California. Our table will share the field with an assortment of very happy dairy cows and a very happy chef. Since it first opened nearly 10 years ago, The Spinsters Sisters has been a warm, welcoming haven in Santa Rosa’s up-and-coming Arts District. Chef Liza Hinman honed her craft in San Francisco at Bizou and Delfina before heading north to Sonoma County, and her place has earned enthusiastic praise as one of Sonoma County’s best restaurants.
