We have a very interesting and unique meeting this month, as well as the unique opportunity to get background/development information from the founder Glen Feder, Fromaggio, creator of the World’s First SMART Home Cheesemaker.
Think breadmaking machine………………seems to be a similar concept to “make almost any type of soft or hard cheese (or yogurt, and even tofu!)” (Fromaggio, 2020).
A little about the creator…………”After living in Paris for 15 years, Glen returned to the U.S. and was surprised to find people were still eating the same, tasteless, artificial, grocery store cheese. So he gathered a team of innovators and foodies — from the director of partnerships at YouTube to the head cheesemaker at a dairy farm. After a very successful Kickstarter campaign, we have now lined up the best manufacturers, suppliers and engineers we could find. Together, we are on a mission to bring affordable, artisanal quality cheese to kitchen countertops worldwide.”
The meeting will start at 7pm with the presenter, as he is on east coast time. Our club business and discussion will commence after the presentation. Zoom info was sent out to members via the club email list.
Join us on Tuesday, August 18th for a presentation by Claire Enemark, author/host of “Behind the Rind” podcast. Then, put on your trivia hat, as she will orchestrate some friendly, cheesy, team competition. Trivia is a great way to have fun and learn some fun facts (or perhaps myths) about cheese. Check out some of the episodes on http://behindtherind.com and maybe, just maybe you’ll have a leg up on some trivia 😊.
Social/sharing time 6:30-7pm – if you’ve made some cheese or found some cheese you really like, this would be a great time to share it with the group.

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.
We miss being together to enjoy cheese, as it is a communal food. So let’s meet and share what we’ve been doing with cheese. This will be a casual but interactive meeting so bring one or more of the following to enjoy while we show, share (visually), and discuss:
A dish made with cheese (e.g., quiche, casserole, dessert)
Cheese pairing (e.g., cheese & beverage; cheese & song; cheese & meat; cheese and outfit….you pick the pair)
Cheese board – make one and show it, you’ll make us all jealous
You’re free to tell us as much or as little about what you bring.
