Our Cheesemonger – Jennifer Minnich

Jennifer claims her love for cheese was born while she was still in middle school. Having enjoyed a sample of a cheese she’d never heard of before at her local shopping mall, she put her twenty cents into the pay phone (remember those) and called home to ask if she could buy some. Sadly, the answer was no, but a window into the vast world of cheese had been opened. Since then, she’s enjoyed literally hundreds of cheeses from dozens of regions around the country and the world. An avid believer that real cheese is good food, she loves sharing her passion for all things cheese.
