Chutharat Sae Tong got into cheese not in the most straight forward way. Born across the pond in Thailand, the cheese world was furthest from her childhood memories of tropical fruits, beaches and sunshine. She then slowly zigzagged her way closer when she moved to the US, eventually landing in the Bay Area for college. The world of Architecture got in the way for a few years after college, then smack, Chutharat not only discovered cheese but got smeared every which way in it. After working as a cheesemonger and buyer for the last eight years, cheese envelops her everyday life, waking up always tasting, experiencing and learning about the world of cheese.
