 Welcome to Chuckuterie! This page is an ongoing project as I grow and develop the wants of the ever amazing Buffalo NY community. Creating a big decadent table display is what I love doing most. Challenging your palette and eye for design keeps the creative juices flowing. Some specialty products are sourced from Murray’s Cheese based out of Manhattan NY and Buffalo Cheese Traders. Their seasonal selections let me continue to offer different products. You can even just buy the product from me and not a whole board!

I am of Italian and Lebanese decent. In Italy, from the Po River Valley region and Rimini and in Lebanon, Beirut. Gorgeous scenery and the freshest foods. What do these cultures meshed together create? A big personality and a vast palette.
Apps, entrees, and desserts are all a huge part of my upbringing. We’ve dedicated a wild amount of time to food. Anytime I get together with friends, food is a huge conversation. Thinking back about it, I’ve always had a tray or huge spread of food for everyone. My family did it, so I thought that was expected. There were countless times the “it” factor was in the presentation, but I didn’t see it. Through my career in events, that part of me developed more and more. I was exposed to a world outside of my own to get inspiration and let the creativity fly.

How did it start?

Fast forward to 2020. Taboo, I know. Like others, this was a year of self reflection; as we all asked ourselves “what am I doing?” I wasn’t totally happy with where I was or what I was doing, so I took a chance! The key was to find a name to develop this idea. I actually did not come up with the name myself, family did. It was not my first choice either. After two months thinking about it and how it would drastically change my life and last 7 years at a job I convinced myself I loved, I decided to take the plunge. The thought of quitting your job in a pandemic was insane, but I had to jump sometime. I was extremely anxious for about 3 weeks then started to appreciate this chapter; 30. Cue the birth of Chuckuterie.

What I do

The majority of my college and work experience is in catering, so my talents are steered in that direction. The table displays are definitely where the talents shine. I strive to offer a product that compliments your occasion. I want it to be a conversation piece; whether I set up and leave or stay and help guests navigate an eye opening table. From a classic graze, to incorporating sandwiches, salads, small bites and desserts, we want something for everyone, 

Where does it all come from?

I  often order through Murray’s Cheese and Buffalo Cheese Traders. Both of these wholesalers offer products that we in Buffalo can’t always experience. To supplement, I use local grocery stores, markets and other small businesses to achieve the diverse boards and table displays. Brands include but are not limited to: Creminelli meats, Brooklyn Cured, Mitica, Mike’s Hot Honey & Tillinghast Farms

I want to talk about why you’re celebrating: who’s going to be there, what are they like, is there a theme, what else are you offering? Or, you tell me how many people, when and where. This should be fun! We can be as classic or crazy with this as you want to be. Preparing this for you, is like preparing it for my family or friends. There’s an expectation and pride that comes along with these boards.  I’m excited to show you my creations and make some memories!
