Though we’d love to see everyone in their green attire, the board has decided that in the best interest of our members and the community, making cheese at home, listening to an educational cheese pod cast, reading cheese articles, or tasting new cheeses (or Irish cheeses) is a better alternative for St. Patrick’s Day (aka March meeting).
Never made cheese? There are some great, easy recipes for beginners on this website – https://cheesemaking.com/collections/recipes?_=pf&pf_t_skill_level=beginner. They also have intermediate and advanced recipes. This is a great website to look through for cheesemaking recipes. Remember, you can get your cheesemaking supplies locally at Curds and Wine; QD members get a 10%, just show your card. Curds and Wine are closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

Traditionally, we recognize “Grilled Cheese Month” at our April meeting. Last week, the board decided to move this event; it is currently scheduled for July. We will be in contact regarding the April meeting.
Stay health and dry,
