After earning a BA in Italian Studies from Montclair State University, Emilia went on to manage Eataly’s cooking school & private events program before picking up a knife. Specializing in Italian cheese & charcuterie, she has worked behind some of NYC’s largest and most reputable cheese counters, and taught cheese and pairing classes all over the country for organizations like Culture Magazine, the Campari Academy, Eataly, the French Cheese Board, local breweries, and many private clients. Emilia is also a Cheesemonger Invitational champion & finalist and spent the pandemic years as the Cheese Buyer for the woman-owned Brooklyn specialty grocer Greene Grape Provisions, working with local purveyors and traveling the USA and Europe visiting producers in order to curate one of NYC’s most impressive cut-to-order cheese and charcuterie selections.

Since 2006, Formaticum has been importing the finest cheese packaging from the leading European manufacturers. They started with the mission to provide American cheesemongers the same professional-grade materials used by the finest European cheese purveyors. They quickly expanded their mission to include selling the same professional-grade materials directly to the consumer. Every cheesemonger is regularly asked by their customers, how they can best store their cheese at home; their products let mongers answer that question by providing consumers with a high-quality and effective solution in an easy-to-use bag format and more.
