Queso Diego March Meeting Announcement

Hello Queso Diegans,

Do you want to learn how simple it can be to start making cheeses at home?

Tuesday’s Meeting topic will be “Cheesy, Soft and Easy” presented by our own Dr. Laura Hershey.

Dr. Laura will be bringing:
Chevre,Ricotta from Ricky Carroll’s book, and Serendipity; a cheese that happened when she abandoned raw goat milk in the back of her refrigerator for 3 weeks.

These cheese are all made from Goats Milk!
I can’t wait to try ’em.

This feature presentation will teach you how to make these
easy cheeses.
Easy means no aging.
Easy means no brining.
These easy cheeses have a very high success rate.
Good for beginners.

In addition, there will be a Grilled Cheese Teaser presented by
yours truly.

Sharing is Caring.
As always, bringing delicious things to share is always promoted.
It is also recommend bringing your tasting glasses to cut down on those pesky plastic cups (and making trash).

The meeting will be held at 6:30pm on Tues, March 17th at City Farmers Nursery (http://www.cityfarmersnursery.com). Map of parking and the meeting location: http://quesodiego.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/City-Farmers-Map.jpg
