Expert Tips on How to Make a Charcuterie Board

Meet Cortney LaCorte, also known as Cheese Gal! Cortney is the founder and owner of the popular Nashville-based company, Cheese Gal, which serves up awe-inspiring charcuterie boards for some of the biggest country music stars in the business (hello, Shania Twain and Tim McGraw!). 

Cortney LaCorte, Creator of Cheese Gal

Born out of a small Nashville kitchen, and with a quick expansion into a brick-and-mortar storefront, Cortney realized that cheese boards have an importance that extends far beyond the delicious nourishment of our bodies, but also our relationships and spirits. Cortney is a cheese board expert and mom of two who has grown her passion for all things cheese and entertaining into a company beloved by so many.

In this episode of The Just a Taste Podcast, Cortney and I chat about:

  • How Cortney made the jump from a single customer on Instagram to a bustling company 
  • How to impress guests with your own ultimate cheese board using Cortney’s tips and tricks 
  • The professional way to cut each type of cheese, where to source the perfect wood boards and what filler items to use to add a wow factor
  • How Cortney handles the ever-present “mom guilt’ of balancing work life and mom life
  • The all-time favorite cheese for one of her regular customers, Tim McGraw!
