Queso Diego October Meeting Announcement

From Wheel to Plate! Join us for the October Queso Diego Cheeseup where we’ll celebrate the onset of Fall with Cheese Boards using harvest ingredients.

Using what we learned from the September meeting, all attendees are encouraged to plate their own Falltastic cheese creations! Please use your assigned harvest ingredient from our former event. If you weren’t there to receive an assignment, or have forgotten your ingredient, don’t fret! You can select a couple of harvest-themed ingredients to center a cheese spread around.

Cheese boards do not need to be large as there will be many to sample from!

Harvest Ingredient Suggestions:
– persimmons
– candied ginger
– butternut squash

Queso Diego October Meeting Announcement

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.

The meeting will be held at 6:30pm on Tues, October 15 (Tomorrow) at City Farmers Nursery (http://www.cityfarmersnursery.com). Map of parking and the meeting location: http://bit.ly/RtI8rX.
