So, we can’t physically travel right now BUT our taste buds can! Let’s go to BRAZIL, virtually, with Livia as our guide. She will present some history and take us through some tastings of BRAZILIAN CHEESE. This is a presentation not to be missed! Livia will be sending out an email with the types of cheeses and where to get them; I believe most, if not all, will be available at Brazil by the Bay Market (brazilbythebaymarket.com). This place is very unique and with low traffic volume easy to get to for obtaining the cheese BECAUSE presentations are always better with CHEESE.
Zoom meeting details were sent out to the club email list.
See you next Tuesday,
Our June meeting will be on Tuesday, June 18th. Jenny Eastwood and Larry Stein will be presenting on Tasting and Classifying Cheese. It’s better than it sounds, with emphasis on the tasting part.
As always, our friendly potluck and social time will start at 6:30. Please consider bringing an item to share, the last few months have been wonderful.
Don’t forget your chair and a light coat in case it’s cold in the brewery.
We will be having our June Queso Diego Meeting on Tuesday, June 19th. As always, it will be held at:
AleSmith Brewing Company
9990 Alesmith Court
San Diego, CA 92126.
The meeting starts at 6:30 PM with sharing of cheese (homemade or otherwise) and cheese-friendly foods, homemade alcoholic beverages, and any other food or non-alcoholic beverage you would like to share. AleSmith beer is available for purchase (no other commercial alcoholic beverages can be served at the brewery).
At 7:00 PM we start the formal meeting with a summary of past and upcoming club events and meeting plans and we always provide a chance to talk about your homemade cheeses and to discuss cheesemaking and answer cheese-related questions.
This month’s featured presentation will be “Chèvre and Beyond: An introduction to cheesemaking”, by Larry Stein. This will be a great educational talk for new and seasoned cheesemakers alike.
Please remember to bring a chair and wear something warm as we meet in the brewery, which can be chilly if the weather is cold.
If you haven’t paid your 2018 dues, please be prepared to pay $20 for individuals or $30 for a family to our new Membership Officer, Olaf Walter.
