June 4th is National Cheese day, and it’s one of our favorite days to celebrate. We love cheese. This year, we are very excited to offer our rotating selection of the best artisan, local, or imported cheeses.

While we are pretty stoked on all of the cheese we sell in our store, some of our absolute favorites come from the Point Reyes Creamery. Point Reyes is a family farm in the San Francisco Bay Area, and their whole cheese-making process from cows to aging happens right on their farm. We’re proud to carry several of their crowd-pleasing varieties, because these cheeses are absolutely delicious, and we think you’ll like them too!

While we can only stock according to the farm’s availability, we like to have at least a couple kinds of Point Reyes’ award-winning cheeses in our cheese case. Right now, we have Point Reyes bleu cheese, Bay Blue, and their versatile table cheese, Toma.

For an elegant, summer dinner without having to turn your stove on, make a mini cheese plate, all supplies available at your local Turnip Truck!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Small-medium hunk of Point Reyes Bay Blue
Medium-large hunk of Point Reyes Toma
Thinly cut Olli Salami
Halved red grapes
Turnip Truck house-made Baguette, sliced on the bias
Dalmatia Fig Spread

Arrange on a cheese board or serving plate and dig in! We think cheese plates are fun because there are no rules and endless combinations, so get creative. Don’t forget the cheese knife and a little spoon for the fig spread.

To complete the meal, pair your Point Reyes Toma with Blue Quail Organic Pinot Noir and the Bay Blue with Predator Old Vine Zinfandel.
