SAY CHEESE! for the Library

cheeseCheesemaker Renate Nollin will be appearing at Dish Hudson, 103 Warren Street, this coming Saturday, July 18 at 5:30pm as part of the series, SAY CHEESE! A benefit for the New Hudson Area Library, the event is co-presented by Dena Moran, founder of Olde Hudson, and Peg Patterson, owner of Dish Hudson.

The term “cottage industry” is often used when referring to small, very personal businesses – often run out of the founder’s home and intensely hands-on. With this in mind, Olde Hudson’s founder, Dena Moran, coined the use of the term “cottage cheeses” to refer to locally made, she calls them “neighbor-made”, small batch cheeses.

For the event, Moran has selected mostly, but not exclusively, fresh cheeses – those that have not been aged. Generally speaking, these cheeses are softer, often spreadable and with a rind. Brie is a familiar example. The evening will include featured cheesemaker, Renate Nollen of Dutch Girl Cheese. She’ll be participating in a Q&A with Moran to talk about her cheeses and cheesemaking in general.

Guests can taste the cheeses, have conversation with the experts, sample some seasonal punch, browse the inventory at Dish Hudson and enjoy the adjacent garden – all while supporting the Campaign for the Hudson Area Library.
