By: Mary Pellegrini
The Rogue Creamery, in Central Point, Oregon, is a “artisan cheese company, with people dedicated to the sustainability and the art and tradition of making the world’s finest handmade cheese“. David Gremmel, cheesemaker at the Creamery, has created cooking videos and posts on Facebook, along with recipes that include their cheeses.
This morning’s breakfast: Rogue Creamery Lavender Cheddar Spring Tart. I ordered the cheddar, it was shipped same day and arrived safely packed with an ice pack and insulation. This simple tart, with it’s sweet almond crust, light, creamy texture, subtle hint of lavender and the compliments it received, has earned a spot on the Old Parkdale Inn’s Spring Breakfast Menu. Next up Lavender Cheddar Panini Sandwich with Apples, Spinach and Red Onion.
