Queso Diego August Meeting Announcement

The August Queso Diego meeting will focus on Spice, Herb, Vegetable, and Fruit cheeses.  This includes any cheeses that have these ingredients integrated into the curd or as a  coating.  There are many types of relatively easy fresh or unaged cheeses that can be used as base for these ingredients, so I would like to encourage members to make some interesting cheeses this month to share.  It is even possible to use store-bought cheeses (chevre, queso fresco, etc) as a base.

Your imagination is the limit and you can use any combination of base cheese and added ingredients for these.  Feel free to make some more suggestions on the email list.  I hope to see a lot of interesting and unusual cheese at the next meeting.  Larry will also be bringing some base cheese for us to modify with our own ingredients.

The meeting will be held at 6:30pm on Tues, August 21 at City Farmers Nursery (http://www.cityfarmersnursery.com).  Map of parking and the meeting location: http://bit.ly/RtI8rX.
