About Me:

I am a Seattle native who has always had a passion for all things cheese and entertaining. My love for cheese all started when I was a young girl. Most kids growing up had the “blue box” mac n cheese, but my mom never let me have that. Her mac n cheese recipe consisted of sharp white cheddar, gruyere and most importantly Hatch green chiles. I apparently was not your average kid, during the holidays, most kids lick the cookie dough batter off the spoon, but instead I would lick the cheese off the spoon when my mom made her famous cheese balls. Being the daughter of a professional chef and the ultimate hostess I grew up around food and entertaining, it is something that is in my blood.

What better way to combine my love of entertaining and my love for cheese than by sharing my boards with the world! And so Grate Boards was born!
