YaJagoff Podcast Cheese Queen

#YaJagoff Podcast

#YaJagoff Late Night Episode 15 Presented by Rohrich Automotive

January 22, 2024


It was six degrees of Kevin Bacon Pittsburgh style! The Cheese Queen, whose family cornered the grocery market with the McGinnis name, is doing the same for cheese and charcuterie, and she just may be adding some new fall honey to her boards. Ryan Rust, who is also premiering his documentary, Hive, at the Lindsay Theater on Feb.4 brought quite the sampling. The writer behind On The Rocks, Maria Palmer, reminds us of the Primadonna Restaurant’s rise and fall, and adds some ricotta cheese stories that made the queen herself make some room on her charcuterie tray.

Growing up, Meg McGinnis’ family owned a multi-generational grocery market that dated back to 1946. Meg learned her love of Charcuterie from her grandmother and would go on to work in the specialty meats and cheese section of that family business, where her expertise grew even further as she experimented with different pairings. Located in Mt. Oliver, The Cheese Queen was born serving up charcuterie boards, grazing tables, and much more. 


Ryan M. Rust is a filmmaker & colorist based in Pittsburgh. Over the last several years he has worked with multiple production companies and storytellers throughout the U.S., including regional and national advertisements for Guardian Protection and GNC. His most recent documentary short film, Hive, follows the story of Hank B., a local beekeeper and skilled carpenter whose passion for honeybees extends far beyond conventional beekeeping.  Catch his film at the Lindsay Theater on Feb. 4. 

Maria Palmer stopped to see the jags again after visiting multiple US cities to talk about the success of her book On The Rocks, the story about the rise and fall of her family’s restaurant, The Primadonna. Who knew that writing with her high school teacher would create such a media frenzy that led to cook and book events?
