Sarah Dvorak on Cheese

The story about how I met today’s guest (Episode 21), Sarah Dvorak, is quite unique.


You’ll have to listen to the show to learn more, but suffice to say, this email was a big part of it. I had the unique opportunity to record this episode at Sarah’s house in San Francisco. SO. MUCH. FUN. I got to meet her husband, see her newborn, eat some cheese … and riff about cheese (and more!) for 30 minutes.

More About Sarah

Who am I? I’m Sarah Dvorak of Mission Cheese. I live and work in San Francisco. What do I do? That’s a really interesting question. I’m a cheese evangelist and a small business owner. At Mission Cheese we promote and tell stories about American artisan cheese and how it’s evolved over the last decade to a vibrant and delicious industry. That’s the crux of what I do. And that’s why I do it; to share the abundance of what’s out there today. To help increase sales of domestic cheeses and help them scale their businesses to where they’re sustainable and viable.
