Our Story

No Corn. Just Cheese.

It all started with an 8 hour first date in the summer of 2010. The date began at the burger joint, The Stand, in the East Village. Drawn there for the toasted marshmallow milkshake, featured on “Best Thing I Ever Ate,” we began our 8 hour excursion. The next few hours were filled with the Chelsea Market, drinks on an old stationary, lightboat in the Hudson River, a walk on the Highline (an elevated train track converted into a park), and ending the night at a bar in Astoria.

  • Just 5 months after we began dating...

    Trent came home to Rochester, NY to meet Allison’s family for the first time. He brought home a Murray’s Cheese Plate in an effort to win them over. (He managed to get his fruit jam through security by telling the security agent he was meeting the family for the first time and needed all the help he could get)
