Thank you for taking the time to read our first blog post. I have always wanted a space for my thoughts, recipes, funny anecdotes, and tales of entrepreneurship.
First let me introduce myself:
My name is Katie and I am the owner at Petoskey Cheese. I am from Petoskey, Michigan and I love my small little hometown.
I started the shop in October of 2015 for a simple reason, I truly believe that my community in Northern Michigan deserves a specialty artisan cheese shop. I love cheese, cooking, artisan foods, and shopping locally.
My daily job duties require; Mongering cheese, problem solving, ordering new fun products, bill paying, marketing and keeping the mood light around the shop.
My favorite thing to eat is: Pizza! My favorite toppings are; mozzarella cheese, onions, roasted red peppers, fresh goat's cheese, roasted garlic and then a heavy shaving on Parmesan Reggiano on top.
My favorite thing about my community is: The love & support from the people who live here and from the people who get to visit.
My go to items on my cheese boards are: At LEAST 3 cheeses. Lately, I have been into Piave, Gruyere AOP, and Colston Basset Stilton. Alongside my cheeses I will make sure my board has mustard, fig jam, marcona almonds, pickles, and chocolate. I love to create cheese plates that allow the guests to play with new flavors.
When I am not at work I am: Typically lounging in my apartment or cooking up a new recipe.
That's all I have for you tonight: Let's stay in touch
