Greetings Queso Diegans,
The March Queso Diego meeting is on March 20th at 6:30 PM at Alesmith Brewing Co.
If you are attending, please RSVP by following link below:
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.

The September Queso Diego meeting will focus on pizza making. We will be firing up a couple of homemade pizza ovens, making mozzarella, and designing our own pizzas using our homemade cheese and our own ingredients. The club will be providing use of pizza ovens and dough and we will be making mozzzarella during the meeting. If you have special dough requirements, e.g. gluten free, you should plan to provide your own dough or crust. We request that you bring some toppings to put on the pizza from your garden or from the store. You can also bring other commercial and homemade cheeses to use on the pizza – feta, gorgonzola, parm, etc. We will also need some members to provide whole milk (non-ultra pasteurized) for making mozzarella. Please fill in what you can bring on the RSVP form.
The meeting will be held at 6:30pm on Tues, September 18 at City Farmers Nursery (http://www.cityfarmersnursery.com). Map of parking and the meeting location: http://bit.ly/RtI8rX.
