Role & Tasks:
I am a freelance writer focusing in on issues regarding cheese and wine. The articles are focused on providing consumers with good information that they will need to have in order to get the best cheese buying experience possible. In addition, some articles are focused on making what can be a very intimidating food group, much more approachable and enjoyable. Some articles are designed to help consumers build their own cheese plates, others are providing information on individual cheeses, while still others provide general information on how cheese is made and what makes it so unique and fun.
I also conduct cheese classes in the DC Metro Area, which incorporate wine and food pairings. These classes are focused toward both food professionals and the general public. The classes that are geared toward food professionals are more of a formal class setting, but are conducted in a fun and relaxed manner...after all cheese is fun! The classes aimed at the general public are focused on providing people in-depth information that they should understand as consumers; information about individual cheeses and cheese and wine pairings. These classes are much less formal and more fun in their structure. They are geared more for social settings rather than a formal class with little interaction. That being said, they provide a hands-on experience with cheese; perfect for those who liked to play with food as kids.
