Elizabeth Nerud

    Elizabeth grew up deep in the heart of her beloved Wisconsin, on a farm where her family raised beef and vegetables. Their milk came from their neighbors, unpasteurized, unhomogenized and delicious. Liz’s mother was instrumental in shaping her culinary education through her adventurous and innovative cooking, delighting in their farm fresh ingredients. Liz moved to Minneapolis in 1985 and began working as a cheesemonger in 2000. She became an ACS Certified Cheese Professional in 2013. In January of 2015 she participated in the Cheesemonger Invitational, an amazing event rich in networking and educational experiences.

    Elizabeth enjoys her work as a cheesemonger, deeply engaged in being an Ambassador of Cheese on a daily basis. It is her pleasure to curate, evaluate and guide as she conveys the message of our dynamic and fascinating industry to the people who enjoy it most, her customers.

    She looks forward to serving as an Aesthetic Judge this year.
