Fromager, Artisanal Premium Cheese
Jessica's love for and appreciation of cheeses was first discovered in London; while working as a chef in a restaurant there she was responsible for choosing the cheeses for the cheese plate by visiting Neals Yard in Covent Garden. From the first visit she was blown away. Knowing she wanted to understand the whole cheese story, she went on to spend some time working on a number of organic goat, sheep, and cow cheese farms in Europe. Back in the US she worked as a recipe tester and writer for a cookbook about American food, and did public relations and cooking demonstrations for Greenmarket, NYC's farmers markets. She earned an urban sociology degree at the London School of Economics and currently works as an urban planner and as a teacher at artisanal.
