League of YEG Home Cheese Makers – May Meeting-Bloomies

On May 9th the League of YEG Home Cheese Makers, a growing group of Edmonton based home cheese makers, met in a spacious room at the Expo Centre at Northlands here in Edmonton.  Our theme was Bloomy Rind Cheeses, or what ever a member had to share.  Not only did we have a great time but we also discussed expanding membership numbers.LYEGHCMPlease note that all the pictures were taken with my phone, sorry for the quality.
