"BLESSED ARE THE CHEESEMAKERS!"
The George at Newnham
Big Cheese - Chris Spree
GASS met at The George and learn to make a soft cheese.
Not only to learn cheese making but you also to take some home.
Followed by Dinner.
(normal GASS rules on 'Cheese' are relaxed for this evening alone).
A demonstration ensued with GASS members putting
there hands into the Whey which was a wet mash of white bits like baby sick!!
A bowl of water was placed to wash hands prior to insertion into the mix, however in true GASS tradition,
nobody listened and used it to wash hands after the cheese handling.
It was pointed out that the cheese is formed by promoting bacterial growth from the background where its made.
Hugh pointed out that had diesel oil under his
finger nails so god alone knows what bacteria will form or what the cheese will
(He never got it - and now two months later as he
writes this - he really doesn't want it - thank you Chris)
these were however purchased from Macknades
Chris 'Cheesy' Spree
That's all very well but in reality -
THE GASS PREFERRED CHEESE
Many thanks to Chris and to the team at The George for such an entertaining evening.
