Some of you may already know, but a former career of mine was as a cheesemonger. I spent my days selling cheese in a fancy cheese shop. I would give the customer a little taste of whatever cheese they were interested in and give them the backstory on that cheese: the type of animal milk it was, what country it was made in, and the time of year it was made. I am not proud of this past career in the dairy industry but I loved the whole process of being able to tell the story behind the product and share this passion with like-minded people. Even after I left that job, I loved to go to cheese stores and take part in this ritual as a customer.
