I feel about cheese as I do my closest friends – it’s their imperfections that make them perfect. The flaws, the cracks, the history and wear around the edges that I rejoice in as perfection.  As a purveyor of artisan cheeses and fine foods, the quest for my next favorite thing has been addicting!  It can take time to get a fix, but after hunting and searching… there is eventually what can be described as the FIND.  And then… the moment when this new gem actually lands in my hands and graces my palate.  I hope my passion for such finds will be contagious!

I have been food obsessed my whole life and have painstakingly poured over my Bon Appetit and Gourmet magazines for as long as I can remember.  Looking back, I am amazed at the extraordinary meals I was serving up to guests at the age of 19, in my modest little studio apartment in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego.  The natural evolution of this obsession, resulted in the opening of my cheese shop, Quel Fromage – all things me, culminating within four square walls of epicurean goodness located in the lushness of the Pacific Northwest.

As of March, Quel Fromage has a happy new owner, and I am on to new ventures which include consulting,  product sourcing  and a cookbook!  I have for the first time, been able to explore the immense joys of simply being a housewife. Um, not your ordinary housewife… the kind who simmers demi-glaze for 48 hours and pours herself a little vino for inspiration. And it’s possible that I do a bit of  ordering from say, Pottery Barn. But I am no dummy- I have those boxes cleared out, the house reasonably tidy and dinner served when my sweet-as-candy hubby gets home. Don’t know how I’ve managed to brainwash him, but he usually proclaims with complete awe that I’ve accomplished so much- how do I do it?

While still preliminary, please visit me here to learn more:

Thanks for visiting!
