 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. To be more specific, Northern Italian, and if you haven’t heard of Lebanese, it means you are from Lebanon… in the Middle East. Maybe you have heard of 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, or “what am I doing?” I wasn’t totally happy with where I was or what I was doing, so 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 an amazing job, I decided to take the plunge. Quitting your job in a pandemic is insane, but somehow it has worked out. 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. As you’ll see I have options for occasions like a day at the park, dinner with friends, game/movie nights to bachelor parties, showers, weddings and corporate functions. These boards or displays can honestly be a part of any event. They will always be a topic of conversation and interest guests. The customization is probably my favorite part. Just because you bought one, doesn’t mean you have the same thing the second, third, fourth time. After all, it’s not all meat and cheese. A board can be a classic take (primarily meats), incorporating more cheese, focus on a color palette, sweets, cultural foods, junk food, you name it.

Where does it all come from?

I can and 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.

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!
