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). Please refrain from sharing or partaking of food before 6:30 PM.

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.

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.

Please RSVP and Enjoy the meeting.

Queso Diego September Meeting Announcement

The September meeting of Queso Diego will be a Homemade Cheese Show and Tell event. We strongly encourage attendees to bring homemade cheeses to share, whether quick and simple or complex cheeses aged for a long time. This is your chance to showcase what you have learned at recent meetings or to get feedback on your cheeses. (If your cheese fails or you run out of time, consider bringing a Summer Cheese dish – just don’t come empty handed!)

Queso Diego May Meeting Announcement

Hello Queso Diegans,

May’s meeting topic will be Homemade Show & Tell of your cheeses and dairy fermentations. Bring any homemade cheeses and dairy fermentations to share and talk about at this meeting.

On the heels of our sucessful Grilled Cheese April meeting, this will be a similar relaxed group sharing style activity. It is a good idea to bring a little label with your name and what you have created. You might even write recipes on there.

Homemade sharing will enter you into a raffle with some great prizes for your efforts.

Some easy cheese recipes can be found on Queso Diego’s site here:
http://quesodiego.org/recipes/

This meeting will also afford us all the opportunity to ask questions on making cheeses at home. In a new, “Curders Corner”.

Sharing is Caring.
As always, bringing delicious beverages is always promoted. Maybe even try a pairing with your cheese?

It is also recommended to bring your tasting glasses to cut down on those pesky plastic cups (and help eliminate waste).

The meeting will be held at 6:30pm on Tues, May 19th at City Farmers Nursery (http://www.cityfarmersnursery.com).
