Meeting: Holiday Party @ Pineland Farms Creamery

wiki_ornament300Our annual Holiday Party was held in New Gloucester at Pineland Farms Creamery, including a catered lunch for Guild members and their guests. Over thirty folks helped us toast our Guild’s accomplishments in 2011, as well as inspired us toward new goals in 2012.

For our Christmas Cheese-taculor this year, many attending brought a batch of Christmas Cove Cottage Cheese for everyone to sample. The one gallon recipe yields about three pints of cottage cheese, so we had asked that everyone contribute: one pint of plain, and one pint of flavored (your choice of add-ins).

We voted on our favorite plain as well as favorite flavored batch, and the winners were:

  • PLAIN: Forage Farm — Diane Schivera, cheesemaker
  • FLAVORED: Silvery Moon Creamery (Cranberry Ginger)– Dorothee Grimm and Rachel Lauriat, cheesemakers

Thanks to everyone who participated!
