From Stay-at-Home Mom to Charcuterie Enthusiast and Beyond
As a former stay-at-home mom, my path to becoming a business owner, digital content creator, and author has been nothing short of flavorful. It all started in the comforting chaos of my family kitchen, where I wrestled with pots, pans, and the never-ending quest for culinary greatness. For years, I believed that to create memorable meals, I needed to be a gourmet chef in the making.
But then, a culinary epiphany: perhaps my true talent lay not in the kitchen’s cooking flames but in the art of presentation and the joy of savoring each bite. I discovered my knack for elevating simple, delicious ingredients into edible works of art.
Charcuterie and Things was born from this revelation, where I embarked on a journey to prove that you don’t need a culinary degree to create stunning, mouthwatering charcuterie boards. I found my calling in assembling cheeses, cured meats, fruits, and other delectables into enticing arrangements that were as pleasing to the eye as they were to the palate.
Today, I proudly wear the hats of a wife and mom and entrepreneur. My passion for crafting visually stunning spreads has transformed into a thriving brand and a captivating blog where I share my insights, ideas, and culinary adventures. Through my journey, I’ve learned that the magic of food isn’t just in its taste; it’s in how it brings people together, creates lasting memories, and tells a story.
Join me as we explore the world of charcuterie and celebrate the beauty of everyday moments through the art of food styling.
Here’s to savoring life, one charcuterie board at a time.
