"Traveling meat" became an idiom for my charcuterie & cheese boards which I would bring to gatherings with my friends. I have always loved to cook, entertain, and experiment in the kitchen. I am constantly working on new recipes and especially love the challenge of personally preparing gluten-free, vegetarian, keto-friendly, culturally diverse, and visually appealing meals. Therefore, it was only fitting that I named my company, Traveling Meat & More.
