Food & drink, WI meetings

An evening with Leagrams Organic Dairy

by Marie Dixon

At their social evening on October 25th The Willows WI Sale enjoyed a presentation by Leagrams Organic Dairy – a family run business, specialising in making organic cheeses – a mother and daughter team, who captured the interest and the taste buds of a fascinated audience. Within fifteen minutes with the help of boiling water, some rennet and several very strong smelling cultures, wonderful smooth cheese was produced and various samples were offered to the membership, flavoured with ginger ,onion, and pineapple. As an added feature many cheeses were for sale together with related items.

The evening was run with professional ease and a great deal of humour. And do remember the valuable lesson we learnt… ‘Do not put your cheese in cling film – always silver foil –it preserves the cheese for longer!’
