Our October meeting will be a "flavored" cheeses event hosted at the residence of Nicole and Mike Hewitt in Cotati. Nicole is a new member to the club and very enthusiastic. She attended our second committee meeting and signed up to host a meeting. Thanks Nicole! The plan is to gather there for sharing food, drink, and good times while we make a large batch of curd (cheddar, gouda, jack? what's your vote?). At the point of draining the whey and moving the curd into press molds, we can add different "flavorings" to each mold to produce completely different cheeses. This is a totally new idea. All input and ideas are appreciated, so please add comments below if you have a lightbulb idea or any suggestion, really. Some flavors we have discussed so far are beer, truffle, peppers, and berries. Please bring along a dish, cheese, bread, beer, wine, or some kind of contribution of your choice. Flavored cheeses, whether homemade or commercial, would be particularly welcome at this meeting. We have chosen to NOT post up the Hewitt's address here. Please RSVP and the meeting address will be emailed to you prior to the meeting.
See you there!
