Petite Jalapeño

The Marin French Cheese Company has been making cheese at its ranch just outside of Petaluma since 1865, and is known as the oldest continually operating creamery in the U.S. Originally known for its mild “breakfast cheese,” which is still produced today, the company now makes a range of classic French-style cheeses using Jersey, Holstein and Guernsey milk from neighboring family farms, and traditional cheesemaking practices.

The wonderfully snackable Petite Jalapeño is a smooth triple crème brie that offers an extra kick from a mix of red and green jalapeño peppers. Enjoy this cheese melted over tortilla chips, sliced over a pear wedge or spread on a baguette. A crisp Sauvignon Blanc or wheat beer will cut the heat from the peppers and enhance the creaminess of the brie.
