An Unforgettable Brunch Experience

The Taste SF drives over the golden gate bridge on a day trip out of the city.

 

California has a growing number of small artisanal creameries that produce amazing cheeses, rivaling the best of Italy and France. One of the first California cheeses that we fell in love with while living in Chicago was Point Reyes Bay Blue cheese. It was the first domestic blue cheese to be widely distributed. We’re always up for a quick getaway from San Francisco, so we decided to head up to the Northern California cheese trail and join one of the most sought after brunch experiences in the Bay Area at The Fork at Point Reyes Farmstead Creamery.

We ordered our car again from Audi on Demand, but this time we decided on the Audi TT roadster, so we could put down the roof for a better view of the spectacular redwood trees, rolling green hills, and cows dotting the hillsides en route to Point Reyes. It was the perfect ride for two!

We pulled up to the unmarked driveaway (it has the family’s name instead of “Point Reyes Farmstead Creamery” on the sign), and just over the hill we were greeted by the creamery’s welcome committee of majestic cows lounging on the sides of the road. No fences between us and the cows here!

Once at The Fork, we were whisked into a room with long tables set for brunch and a patio that was to die for. A spread of cheeses and crackers, along with a terraced garden, and views for miles of rolling hills and cows. Everything here is fresh and local! We enjoyed a multi-course brunch including (our favorite) blue cheese biscuits and whipped honey, a fava leaf salad, shakshuka, and finally, Chef Jennifer Luttrell’s strawberries and coconut pound cake served with coffee. This event happens only about four times a year, so it’s best to get on their email list so you know when the tickets open. It sells out pretty much immediately. You can also visit during the summer for a farm tour, and you’ll finish with a homemade ice cream sandwich. That’s something we’d come back to try ASAP.

We purchased a variety of cheese to bring home, along with our favorite pimento cheese spread that they only sell at the farm and at local farmers markets. On our way back to the city, we also stopped at Hog Island to pick up oysters fresh from the farm. Perfect for a late afternoon snack.
