Today on the Being Home With Hunker podcast Laurie Gunning Grossman is talking with cheese and charcuterie board experts, Sarah Simms and Boo Simms Hendrix from Lady & Larder.

Lady & Larder is a boutique cheese shop in Santa Monica, California. If you’re unfamiliar with their boards, you really need to go to their website and to see their cheese, charcuterie, fruit, and vegetable boards, which are true pieces of edible art.

Sarah and Boo, who are twin sisters, grew up in the world of hospitality and in a family who connected over cooking and sharing meals. Now with Lady & Larder, they say that they’re storytellers — the way they sell cheese is by telling the stories of the humans who made them. For them, this is a huge piece of the pie.

In this conversation, they share expert tips on how people can build their own cheese and charcuterie boards, including how much food you’ll need, and why it’s important to source locally and seasonally when possible. They also share some thoughts on pairings — which drinks pair best with certain cheeses, and the board trend that they are excited about right now.

Oh, and we also touch upon a hot button topic: how we should be wrapping and storing our cheese.
