The Classic Cobb Never Goes Out Of Style


Classic Cobb Salad with Point Reyes Bay Blue
Serves 4
Who doesn’t love a Cobb Salad? For lunch or dinner, a Classic Cobb satisfies on every level with crunchy greens, sweet tomatoes, savory bacon, farm fresh eggs, creamy avocado and of course delicious blue cheese! Our preferred version is full of Point Reyes Bay Blue, which is full of complex, layered flavors that are both savory and sweet. This recipe originated at The Fork, Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company’s on-farm culinary and educational center. Executive Chef Jennifer Luttrell whips this salad up whenever guests want a light meal that is packed with loads of protein and maximum flavor.

The Giacominis' goal was to create something that would combine their mutual appreciation of farm-fresh food, love for the land where they were raised, and desire to keep their family’s legacy alive for future generations. The dream was realized in August 2000, when the first wheels of Point Reyes Original Blue, California’s only classic-style blue cheese, were made. Today, in addition to award-winning cheeses, the Giacomini family of Point Reyes has expanded their business to offer farm-to-table educational experiences at The Fork, an extraordinary new culinary and educational center.
