We had a wonderful Holiday Party hosted by Balfour Farms. We had eight different ricottas to taste of all different kinds of milk and methods — whey only, skim milk, whole milk. It was especially interesting to see the textural differences. It was great to see everyone who attended, and thank you to all the cheese makers who participated in the ricotta tasting.
Our Guild Annual Meeting was on Monday, November 10th beginning at 10am at the State of Maine Cheese Co. on Route 1 in Rockport.
Among the general business and future planning for 2015 and beyond that we discussed, we elected four board members:
- Jessie Dowling
- Jean Koons
- Anne Bossi
- Mary Belding
and elected a new Treasurer — Mary Belding. Thank you to all the members who have volunteered to help run the Guild, and thanks especially to the years of work that Mark Whitney put in as Treasurer, going back to the founding of the Guild in 2003.
