The October meeting of Queso Diego will take place tomorrow, October 15. We will be doing a harvest and Halloween themed pairing night and we encourage members to bring cheeses, foods, and beverages to create pairings. The club will provide a few harvest-themed cheeses and we expect that members will bring lots of interesting things to try. Feel free to bring pre-planned pairings or things to mix-and match with what other attendees bring. The idea behind this is to provide an opportunity before the holiday season for us to try out different combinations and develop ideas to share with our friends and family during the holidays.
A few ideas to get you started:
cheeses and foods involving fall and pumpkin spices, ciders and pumpkin beers and cheeses to pair with them, wine and cheese pairings, liquor or cocktail pairings, foods made with cheeses, etc.
Please RSVP using the following form:
The November Queso Diego meeting will focus on cheese and beverage pairings. With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s a great time to start thinking about sharing cheeses with family and friends. For this meeting, we are going to explore pairing cheeses with beer, wine, mead, cider, liquor, cocktails, and non-alcoholic drinks. We encourage everyone to bring a cheese and/or a beverage to pair with and a favorite pairing would be even better. We will share our pairings and mix-and match to find new combinations. We will then have some discussion about our favorites and what worked well for pairings.
