Close enough to catch the cooling fog of the Pacific Ocean, Bellwether Farms in Sonoma County, California, can state with pride that their cheeses grace the tables of some of the finest restaurants across the country.
Rich and buttery with stiff notes of tart yeast to balance it, Crescenza is modeled after the centuries-old Italian cheese, Stracchino di Crescenza. Bellwether's Crescenza is a soft-ripened cow's milk cheese without a rind to hold back the luscious ooze. Spread it over crackers, bread, fruit -- anything you want imbued with creamy intensity.
