Curt Wittenberg will give the presentation this month on Sheep Milk Cheeses. It will be accompanied by wonderful cheeses so you won’t want to miss it.

We will also have an introduction to April’s Grilled Cheese Meeting and some ideas for what you might bring. Remember, creativity and delectability are most welcome.

The young Cheese of the Month is Mozzarella and the aged cheese is Gouda. Try your hand at these monthly challenges to increase your cheesemaking skills.

Finally, if you need anything from the Library of Cheesemaking, please be sure to make your requests by Thursday March 15th so they can be packaged and delivered at the meeting.

We hope to see you all there.

Until then, stay cheesy.

Queso Diego April Meeting Announcement

Hello Queso Diegans,

April is National Grilled Cheese Month and we at Queso Diego really know how to celebrate.
It is time again for our popular Gourmet Grilled Cheese Meeting!

Bring everything you need to make gourmet grilled cheeses to share with the club.

It is suggested to label you items and to bring some electric skillets, pannini presses, irons, and whatever might help us grill up an epic amount of grilled cheeses in shorter window of time. Farmer Bill Tall only has so many burners.

If you want to know what to expect, check out some handy photos of Grilled Cheese Meeting April 2013 found in my March 2015 “Intro To Grilled Cheese”.

Sharing is Caring.
As always, bringing delicious side dishes and beverages is always promoted.

Its 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, April 21st 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
