When she’s not training for the New York City Marathon, Megan can often be found concocting delicious recipes to, as she says, “Fuel the miles with a healthy balance” – a balance that often includes cheese!

How long have you been cooking and when / why did you develop a passion for food?
I’ve only started cooking in the last 5 years or so (before that I relied on my mom or the college dining hall!). My love for the kitchen began while I was living in Europe in 2006. I took some cooking classes, learned the basics, and slowly began to explore the world of artisinal foods.

What do you like about French cheese?
When it comes to cheese, I think it’s important to buy the best quality you can afford. A small portion of delicious brie or goat cheese is much more satisfying that a ton of sub-quality “cheese product”. And cheese is so versatile! You can have it for breakfast (mmm, ricotta with honey and fruit!), for dinner, or on a dessert plate.

Favorite thing to serve at a party or family gathering?
I recently discovered how delicious hot pepper jam and goat cheese can be together. Pour the jam over the goat cheese, add crackers to the plate, and tada! you’ve got an easy, unique appetizer.

Gertrude’s blog - My Kitchen Snippets – is full of delicious recipes. She indulges in Asian, Western and North/South American cooking and lives in the Suburbs of Philadelphia with her husband.

“I love the creativity of every culture when it comes to food and cooking, and I love applying those elements to my recipes in a variety of styles, they just create a mix of international flavors,” she said.

Look for her recipes soon on the Cheese Lover’s Blog!


How long have you develop a passion for food? How long have you been cooking and when/why?

I’ve been cooking ever since I was a young teenager and I have never stopped. It was important in my family, and in my culture, to share a good meal with family and friends, as well as the ritual of cooking. I’m a Chinese, born and raised in Malaysia. In my culture we believe that good food is good for the heart, soul and brings people of all diversity and family together. I’ve been in the States for a number of years now, married to an Argentine-American that has added a number of Western and Italian-Argentinean dishes to my ever grown cooking repertory. And so I’ve been delighted to share some of my Asian recipes, as well as Western and South American recipes with a wide audience across the world.

What do you like about French Cheese?

French cheese are produced in a large variety and flavors. They are ideal for me to use in dishes as well as being served them with fruits as after dinner desserts or even in hors d’oeuvres. One can never have enough of cheese especially my husband.
