Announcing a new Meetup for Wheyward Bound Cheesemaking Club of Sonoma County!

What: Janet Fletcher offers us an educational experience with Water Buffalo cheese.
When: Wednesday, June 22,[masked]:00 PM

Price: $15.00 per person

Where: The Beverage People
1845 Piner Rd
Santa Rosa, CA 95403

Janet Fletcher will be with us on Wednesday, June 22 from 6-8pm at The Beverage People classroom to discuss Water Buffalo cheese. Janet is an acclaimed author of many cheese tasting books and a writer for The SF Chronicle. She last visited us to teach us about tasting cheese and it was rated a 9.9 meet up! So don't miss this opportunity to learn more about this milk and the types of cheese that are produced using it. We hope to taste at least a half dozen different ones that will cover many styles.

The evening is an RSVP event with payment here on the meetup site. She will be paid a stipend of $200 plus we need to purchase the cheeses. So we are asking for $15 a head and if we don't have 20 or more members attend, we will cover the extra from the club treasury - but hopefully we can get 20 attendees.

Here is a copy of her bio from her web page:

"I discovered farmers’ markets and the pleasures of the table as a college student in Provence. Shelving plans for business school, I enrolled in cooking school instead. But it was the two years I spent as a cook at Chez Panisse that shaped my taste, honed my skills and nurtured my interest in fresh produce, small-farm issues and traditional foodways. Over almost three decades as a San Francisco Bay Area journalist—first at the Oakland Tribune, then at the San Francisco Chronicle—I have spotlighted the trends and profiled the people who make Northern California such an exhilarating place to cook, eat and work.

I continue to write about food and wine; teach cooking and cheese-appreciation classes, often for private groups; collaborate with chefs, wineries and restaurants on book projects; and undertake custom writing and recipe projects for food and wine clients. Over the years, my newspaper journalism has been honored with three James Beard Awards and the International Association of Culinary Professionals Bert Greene Award. I was also the scriptwriter on two Beard Award-winning DVDs produced by the Culinary Institute of America. In spare moments between deadlines, you can find me in the garden."

We look forward to this event as educational and fun with lots of cheese to share.
