Anna, Brooklyn Senior Market Manager, Actual Cheese Guru

Sometimes our hobbies turn into passions, and passions into lifestyles. You don't have to know her long before realizing that Anna is the most knowledgable cheese consumer you'll ever meet. Of course, all this knowledge has to go to work somehow – in Anna's case, through parties and dinners. Want to find out what Anna would get for her go-to chef? 

 

 

 

 

 

Ucciinc "Bad Seed" apron - $25
Noda Design Studio cutting board - $36
Noda Design Studio cat cheese board - $24

"As a gift for that wonderful holiday party host or hostess, I'm obsessed with Ucciinc's aprons, all hand-printed by owner Joe Ferucci himself. With phrases like "Bad Seed" and "Baked" and images ranging from pigs to cleavers, you can find one that truly speaks to your friends' individual personality. The best part is that they come in wine bottle sized bags, making it the perfect personalized gift to bring to the party!

If your chef friend is also an animal lover, they'll be delighted by Noda Design Studio's cutting boards and cheese boards in adorable cat and dog designs. These boards are made of quality wood and are super affordable. And if you're going for an even more personalized gift, they've been known to do custom orders too (I got my friend's a custom picture frame as a wedding present and they loved it!)"
