Katie's 5th Goosiversary

KatieCheesemonger.jpg

Five years ago, Katie took up a position behind the cheese counter at Goose and quickly ripened into supervisor and head cheesemonger. As she represented Goose at American Cheese Society national conferences and built relationships with cheesemakers and affineurs near and far, Katie selects rare, seasonal, and whey cool cheeses that make the Goose shelves bloom. 

Over the years, Katie has assembled some of the most beautiful selections to ever inspire appetites. But what makes Katie the big cheese is her talent for assembling people around those curds and whey. She arranges cornucopia boards for Goose events and her popular cheese classes that inspire oohs and ahhs and, most importantly, a shared experience that makes everything taste better. Quick with a smile, she partners with Goose guests and really listens to their preferences because she cares so much about selecting exactly the right wedge for their moment. She explains the stories behind the wheels with a careful, calm insight that makes the samples she passes across the counter feel like treasures only more valuable when shared. 

Katie's affinity for curds is contagious, and her spirit helps guide Goose. We're grateful for her expertise in product and people. Give her a high five and ask about her favorite wheel in the case when you come in soon. Thank you, Katie, and Happy Fifth Goosiversary!

Ham you heard about the Goose Gang?

KevinSausage.jpg

As meat monger Kevin celebrates five years smiling behind the counter, Goose is excited to announce his new position has Head Butcher. Happy anniversary and congratulations, Kevin!

A trip to Ireland earlier this spring for the World Butcher Championship as one of only two Americans on the educational and networking program helped feed Kevin's insatiable hunger to fine tune his craft with techniques and advice from master butchers the world over. (Be sure to ask him about being adopted by the New Zealand national butchering team!)

  One of Kevin's most delicious memories is from a trip to visit family in Spain just after turning 21. Every bar had different tapas, but when they pulled up a stool at one in the shadow of the   Alhambra, slices of dry cured ham helped make the memory. "Sitting in the night in this ancient city, with family I hadn't seen in too long, enjoying this beautiful dry cured meat, and having this amazing palace lit up across the road from us... Pretty great."

Pretty great."

Kevin is as passionate about the artistry and sourcing of butchery as he is about the dinner on your table. His excitement is contagious whenever he answers what would make the best dinner from today's meat case. Backed by years of hands-on experience, he's a trusted and jolly source whether seeking that special, specific cut or simply seeking suggestions. 

That expertise combined with a gentle spirit makes Kevin a rare cut (wink). Help us celebrate his fifth goosiversary and a well-deserved promotion. Congrats, Head Butcher Kevin!

Speaking of celebrations, Kevin's ham-ing a party... Register for his new seated, guided Ham Classes! In June, he'll lead a tasting of five domestic hams followed by July's class featuring five hams from Italy, Spain, France, and beyond. Between bites, Kevin shares how the hams were made and what makes them special from a fellow butcher's expert training. Served up with paired accompaniments (and drinks!) plus a tasty swag bag to take home, Kevin's Charcuterie Nights are in session this summer.
