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).

Queso Diego April Meeting Announcement

Hello Queso Diegans,

April is National Grilled Cheese Month and we at Queso Diego really know how to celebrate.
It is time again for our popular Gourmet Grilled Cheese Meeting!

Bring everything you need to make gourmet grilled cheeses to share with the club.

It is suggested to label you items and to bring some electric skillets, pannini presses, irons, and whatever might help us grill up an epic amount of grilled cheeses in shorter window of time. Farmer Bill Tall only has so many burners.

If you want to know what to expect, check out some handy photos of Grilled Cheese Meeting April 2013 found in my March 2015 “Intro To Grilled Cheese”.
