  • What is the best thing about working at The Truffle Cheese Shop?

–   I love my Co-workers and customers, but the cheese is honestly the best part. I get to fall in love with a different wheel everyday of the week.

  • If stranded on a desert island, what is the one cheese would you need to have? Why?

– Parmigianno-Reggiano. I would hollow it out, eat the inside, and use the rind as a boat or possibly as a salad bowl.

  •   If you were a cheese, what cheese would you be, and why?

– Strachitund, because it’s stinky and horrible, the slightly less so after you get to know it

  •   Where is your favorite place to eat in Denver?

– El Taco De Mexico @ 7th and Sante Fe. Some of my earliest memories are chewing gigantic burritos bathed in blue light with the sound of flying knives and spitting grease in the background
