There are titles that go almost unnoticed, but being a cheesemonger definitely stands out! It took a long time but eventually, I met a cheesemonger. That cheesemonger, Jessica Keahey (founder of Sweet Freedom Cheese in Bentonville, Arkansas), led a virtual meetup and cheese tasting & we later met in person as we toured two dairy farms! We certainly weren't short of topics to discuss and Jessica kept coming up with cheese puns to keep it light!
We talk about how to choose cheeses for a cheese or charcuterie board, what to e pair with cheese, how much cheese to put on the board and more.
This post is sponsored by Midwest Dairy. Ashley Anderson who also in part of the episode, is the wellness director there. I was compensated for my time, but all wording and opinions are mine or the people sharing them.
