Cream Cheese- Plain- Zingerman’s Creamery

To be honest, there’s really nothing “fancy” at all about this cream cheese. No secret ingredients, no secret recipe, nothing hidden. Like breads from Zingerman’s Bakehouse or good cheese from any of the dozens of tradition-minded farms we buy from, Zingerman’s Creamery is going back to doing things the way they were done ages ago. We’ve willingly traded off cost and efficiency to get fuller flavor and support a return to traditional techniques.

So what about doing it the old way makes it taste so good?

Besides having hands-on passion and expertise from its makers at Zingerman’s Creamery, our cream cheese is hand ladled, which protects the cream cheese’s delicate texture. And because there are no added vegetable gums, preservatives, artificial additives or sweeteners, the flavor is way better…more direct. You’ll find it’s softer, lighter, fresher tasting than any cream cheese you’ve ever tried.

Don’t just limit this great stuff to bagels. Mix a spoonful into pasta tomato sauces. Smear some on a slice of toasted chocolate sourdough or cranberry pecan bread. Top toasted farm bread with a dollop then pour on extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of sea salt and Tellicherry pepper.

First-place winner at the American Cheese Society awards.
