Queso Diego August Meeting Announcement

August 15th 2023 Queso Diego Meeting

AleSmith Brewery
9990 AleSmith Ct.
San Diego, CA 92126

We are excited that Moroccan chef and cookbook author, Kitty Morse, will be joining us for the August Meeting of Queso Diego at 6:30PM on August 15th in the Barrel Room at AleSmith Brewing Co. Kitty is a wonderful storyteller and the author of many cookbooks including “Mint Tea and Minarets”, a fascinating cookbook that combines autobiographical accounts of her upbringing in Morroco and traditional recipes from her childhood. She will discuss that book as well as her newest cookbook, “Bitter Sweet”, based upon the diary of her great grandfather recounting the impact of WWII in Alsace, France, and her great grandmother’s cookbook with Alsatian recipes from that era. She will also have both books available for sale and signing.

Members of the club will be cooking dishes from those cookbooks to accompany Kitty’s presentation and making cheese from those regions. If you would like to bring French or Moroccan food or cheese for the potluck, that would enrich the experience.

The potluck begins at 6:30 and meeting at 7:00. Please bring a dish to share. Homemade cheese and homemade brews are encouraged.

The Cross-Club picnic has been scheduled for August 19th. Details to be emailed.

Once again, It’s still early but board elections are in November, so if anyone is interested in serving on the board let us know and feel free to join the next board meeting on September 12th.

Please remember to bring a chair, looking forward to seeing you!

Queso Diego November Meeting Announcement

The November meeting of Queso Diego will feature a presentation by Queso Diego President, Alyssa Humbert, on Italian Cheese, based on her recent trip to Italy. She will talk about Italian cheeses, including the cheeses she found in Italy, and share samples of Italian cheeses. This is our final regular meeting of the year, as December is our special holiday party, which we will discuss at the meeting. Attendees are welcome to bring cheeses and snacks to share, and Italian cheeses and foods are especially encouraged.
