This is the fascinating story of an iconic Northern California brand and its founders, Sue Conley and Peggy Smith. Part cookbook, part narrative, and cheese education, this book explores the creation and development of their famous creamery, the history of the organic food movement in Marin and Sonoma counties, including dairy farmers and other artisans, terroir in cheesemaking, how to serve, store and eat cheese, and 75 recipes using cheese.
Sue Conley co-founded Bette's Diner in Berkeley before going on to co-found Cowgirl Creamery with Peggy Smith. Peggy was a longtime chef at Chez Panisse and Chez Panisse CafE.
