Posts Tagged ‘Sourdough’

IMG_2616On a recent visit to Petaluma I picked up some Marin French Cheese. I couldn’t resist I’d never heard of “Breakfast Cheese” and who am I to question the authority of a cheese that has been around since the Lincoln Administration? I had to have it for breakfast, right? Right???


A bloomy rind and brie-like texture with a tangy bite, it was lighter in mouthfeel and flavor than your average brie. I guess that’s why it’s a breakfast cheese, even The Sonomaist has to pace herself!

Feeling rainy day adventurous I whipped up a recipe I’ve been eyeballing, from Danielle’s wine country kitchen blog, Sonomagirl. A one day sourdough for when Acme Bakery is just too far away.


Sonoma Girl’s fabulous one day (direct dough method) sourdough recipe.

It definitely wasn’t a classic “crunchewy” sourdough, in the estimation of The Mister. But it was dense and delicious. The whole wheat flour made it eat like a meal. Very nice with butter, but off the chain with the Breakfast Cheese, a side of seedless red grapes and some citrusy 2006 Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Blancs sparkling (89 pts.)

What are some of your favorite wine and/or cheese breakfasts? I’d love to know (any excuse, right?) As far as The Sonomaist is concerned, it’s okay to drink before noon as long as you call it ‘brunch.’ And you can quote me on that.

Thank you Marin Cheese and Sonoma Girl for upping my breakfast time game!
