CHEESE QUEEN’S ROYAL CHARCUTERIE ACADEMY WITH MEGAN MCGINNIS
The story of The Cheese Queen begins with deeply rooted family traditions. Growing up, my family owned a multi-generational grocery market dated all the way back to 1946. For years, I cherished Sunday trips gallivanting around the city with my Grandmother to visit all of her favorite specialty shops. And that’s where my story began. I learned my love of Charcuterie from that Queen, and boy was she something special! Oh, the spreads of cheese, meats, pickled veggies she would put together
brought people from far and near. Following her example, as a young adult, I landed a job in the Specialty Meats and Cheese section of the family business where I grew my expertise even further, tasting, experimenting, and discovering different pairings
and all of the latest trends. Enter: The Cheese Queen. Priceless lessons from my Grandmother continued to carry on through my life. She taught me you don’t need fancy, complicated recipes - just good food made with fresh, quality ingredients and a whole lot of love. And that’s exactly what you’re going to get from me. Delicious, hand-picked, fresh, and custom curations especially for you - every order, big or small - is handled with care and made with love from me to you.
The past year led us to learn, discover and adapt to new things, sometimes even new beginnings. We spent more time at home with our families and less time with our friends. We baked banana bread and made 30-second dance videos, and most importantly, we made the best of it. Me? I dove right back into the things I love. I took my passion and family traditions, gave them a purpose, and then made them my profession. My goal was to bring a little bit of joy to others during a difficult time. And as celebrations and gatherings continue to change, I would be honored to bring my passion and knowledge to your table!
