We have been handcrafting our Marinated Cabecou with the highest quality ingredients since 1984. Our cheese discs are cut from our fresh logs and placed on racks to dry for 5 to 7 days. They are then hand packed into recyclable anti-leak jars with savory herbs and paired with a high quality blend of oils. Our marinade slowly infuses its rich flavors into the creamy and tart buttons before leaving Sonoma.
Cabecou is a favorite for a toasted baguette, salads, roasting recipes and stirred in soups. The tasty marinade is a bonus dressing for your recipes. Brush fresh tomatoes with some of the infused oil and roast them until they begin to brown. The spicy Jalapeño oil is our favorite to dip bread or drizzle over salmon. Pair Herb Cabecou with a Sauvignon Blanc, Spicy Cabecou with a Syrah, and our new Truffle Cabecou with an old Burgundy.
