Rogue Creamery Cheddar Spring Tarts

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“.

We’ve been ordering Rogue Creamery’s Rogue’s Mary (rosemary) and La Di Da Lavender cheddar for a few years now. It is shipped same day and arrives safely packed with ice packs 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.
