Bright, briny, and utterly original, this West Coast washed rind is one bold cheese. Washed in a salt mixture and aged for about a month, Red Hawk emerges as a dappled triple cream with a signature orange rind. With an aromatic and meaty assertiveness, it also maintains a rich, smooth profile that speaks to the lush seaside coast where it was born. Cowgirl Creamery co-founders Sue Conley and Peggy Smith opened their artisanal operation after decades of individual success in the Bay Area’s food scene, and since the late 90s, they’ve been producing award-winning cheeses like Red Hawk. We recommend pairing this standout wheel with something equally as delicious, like a spicy California red.
