CHEESE JOURNEY'S FOUNDER & TOUR host
Born and raised around family farms in Iowa, USA, Anna Juhl grew up eating and cooking the foods her Czech, German and Swedish ancestors had traditionally made. Her love of food and cooking saw her working happily within the family business, Juhl Haus Market & Café, a destination food oasis in Salt Lake City. During that time, Anna was winning awards for cheese fondue, best bratwurst and best dining experience.
During her time at Juhl Haus, Anna sourced the finest cheeses and other foods from artisan European and American producers to share with her customers and chefs. Cheese Journeys’ travelers will now have a chance to meet and learn from these speciality food producers while dining at their tables. A dedicated food professional, Anna offers a warm and personal style of hospitality which lies at the heart of what Cheese Journeys offers.
“Cheese Journeys has been a vision for a long time”, says Juhl. “When my
family and I first traveled to Europe and experience these cheeses and
met these producers personally, it was life changing. By creating this
type of food travel opportunity, not just for food professionals but
also for cheese enthusiasts, we hope to lend greater support to these
amazing cheese makers of the world and help build in the USA, a wider
appreciation for quality produced artisanal foods."
