Mongers' Provisions was founded in 2017 by Zach Berg and William Werner, and in 2018 their second store was opened at 4240 Cass, between Willis and Canfield, selling a rotating selection of domestic and imported cheeses as well as globally sourced chocolate and charcuterie.
Berg, began his culinary journey to cheese mongering with a kosher catering gig at the ripe old age of 13 washing dishes and unloading food trucks as Detroit hosted the 1998 Maccabi Games. From meeting his now business partner at Tamarack Camps, to teaching kosher cooking to Monday Night School students, Zach Berg has taken his passion for food and his Jewish roots with him all over the world.
Zach went to the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, where he was the President of the Student Wine Club, a role that involved venturing out for wine tastings every Saturday for 40 weeks. He also delivered cheese to the famous French Laundry, working for Soyoung of Andante Dairy, which is why he is one of only about 10 shops in the country sells her cheese.
