On Friday, August 23, Erika will be speaking to us in The Beverage People classroom at 6:00pm. They have a farm and creamery in Boonville where they are producing handcrafted cheese exclusively from goats and sheep that are raised on the family farm. She will talk about the seasonal differences in milk, milk handling techniques and anything else you may want to ask her about. She will bring some of their cheeses for us to taste and of course, everyone is encouraged to bring whatever food and drink you want.
We will be collecting a $5.00 fee at the door to cover our stipend cost for Erika.
Jan will make name tags for those who still don’t have one.
Thank you to all who brought in cheeses and wines, they were lovely! I enjoyed all of them very much!!! Great night! Kathy & Kimmie, great job on the Valencay - and thanks for guiding me to the recipe http://www.thebeveragepeople.com/pdf/webcheesepdf/Valencay.pdf
Finally took the plunge: made my first cheeses, a Valencay from Kimi's recipe and Bob's Manchego. I unmolded my Valencay too soon and have these very funny looking "cushions" I am calling them! Manchego a little better...learning...made also Cabecao from Mary Karlin book with porcini mushrooms soaked in cab. They smell pretty good, going to wrap them in grape leaves and serve with pears preserved in Gewurtztraminer! Yum! Fingers crossed! Thank you Nancy, Bob, Kimi and all the rest of you! Having fun!
