Widgee's Cheese Makers on Show

Article excerpt

WITH a love of tasty cheeses, a few of the local lasses have joined together to make their very own - poring through books for different ideas and varieties and giving each cheese its very own, unique flavour.

The Widgee Cheese Makers was born through the efforts of Kath O'Donnell and Judy Houben, aided and ably abetted by Sharon Le Page.

Together they are off to the Maleny Show this weekend, entering 12 different cheeses, some made from our very own pasteurised Cooloola Milk while others from pasteurised buffalo milk from Witta.

Varieties include chabichou, quark, Greek feta, both single and double brie as well as matured and vintage cheddar.

This is their first competitive venture with their cheeses, and we wish them well at the Maleny Show.
