Meet the Monger – Jill

How long have you worked at the Cheese Lady? Since we opened in GR! (October 2012)

Favorite cheese (today) and what you like about it. Frans Hals – creamy goat’s milk gouda, never fails to make me say – ‘Oh Yeah!’

Favorite food/dish or recipe. Cheese, tomatoes, and pasta – can’t choose one.

Favorite Movie  – Shakespeare in Love

Favorite Book – Jack Gilbert’s “Collected Poems”

 Favorite Band – Jake and Jimmy (of course)

What do you like best about working at the Cheese Lady? I love hearing our customer’s stories, often travel sometimes childhood, of the unforgettable cheeses they’ve met

Personal tidbit of interest about you My get-away place (giant hut) is an old one-roomed school house where I was in the last kindergarten class.  My garden there is where the Maccabee Hall stood before it blew down, 1911.
