I was an invited guest of the Sunday Supper Movement for the Cooking with Cabot Live Event at the Epicurean Theatre last week. This event gave me an opportunity to learn more about the Cabot Creamery Co-operative. Cabot Creamery is a company owned by the 1100 farm families who produce the dairy products we purchase and enjoy. All of the profits are returned to the farmers whose hard work produces the award-winning dairy products which Cabot Creamery sells.
I must admit prior to this event I was only familiar with the Cabot Creamery Cheese. I am a huge fan of the Pepper Jack, Seriously Sharp White Cheddar and the Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese.
I had no clue they also produced butter and yogurt though. I know, how could I not? They are available in all of the grocery stores in which I shop. I know because after the event I noticed their products everywhere.
The Cooking with Cabot Event started with breakfast that included a fully loaded yogurt bar. This was perfect for me because my go to breakfast during the week is a cup of yogurt with a granola bar. It’s easy to grab and go when I do not have time to prepare a full hot breakfast.
The yogurt bar was filled with mixed fresh and dried fruit, granola, a variety of nuts and Divine Chocolate. I had my yogurt with blueberries, strawberries, and granola. The chocolate is delicious but I chose to eat mine on the side instead of inside of my breakfast bowl.
It was amazing to see the many options that the other attendees came up with for their yogurt bowls. What are your preferred yogurt mix-ins?
The morning was filled with Cooking with Cabot demonstrations by Professional Angler and Chef Jimmy Kennedy.
The recipes demonstrated included the BBQ Teriyaki Vegetable & Cheddar Rolls, Tomato Basil Mac & Cheese and the Cheddar Cornbread. Trust me when I say they are all worth a try. I know I will be making them at home in my kitchen.
Then we had lunch at Elevage inside the Epicurean Hotel. Our lunch featured the Cabot Creamery products of course.
After lunch, we had a little self-care break where we had a drumming lesson and took some time to stretch a bit.
Lastly, the Cooking with Cabot event concluded with a Cheese Plate Competition. And let me tell you these folks did not take this competition lightly.
I had an amazing time learning about Cabot Creamery’s full line of products. I am excited to experiment with more of their recipes at home in my own kitchen.
What are your favorite uses of Cabot Creamery products in your home?
