Meet our owner, Dana
Dana always had a love for food and in 2021 she decided to pursue one of her passions, creating artfully styled charcuterie boards. Soon she was busy juggling a new full time business and her corporate job. Taking a leap and going all in on her dream, she opened The Grazing Room in 2023.
Welcome to The Grazing Room – where the art of charcuterie meets passion and creativity. Founded in 2021 by Dana Berbenich, our story is one of a journey from corporate burnout to a dream realized in the culinary world.
Dana, with a decade of experience in corporate HR, found herself yearning to reconnect with her true passion – food. Always dreaming of becoming a chef, she decided to tap back into her culinary roots. Food, for Dana, is not just a meal; it's her love language.
In 2021, Dana embarked on a new adventure by creating a food Instagram page. Sharing her kitchen escapades and showcasing her charcuterie creations, she quickly garnered attention. The demand for her charcuterie boards grew, leading Dana to a pivotal decision – to turn her passion into a thriving business.
Late in 2021, Boards by Dana was born. Starting with a dedicated charcuterie Instagram page and website, Dana's creations gained popularity, and the business blossomed. Juggling her full-time job and the growing demands of her charcuterie venture, Dana faced a tough decision.
After a year and a half of balancing both worlds, Dana made the bold move to expand. She sought out a commercial space, and as fate would have it, she found the perfect spot in downtown Bel Air. This marked the birth of The Grazing Room, a haven for charcuterie enthusiasts.
