The Food & Wine section of the latest issue of Find Bliss Magazine features Master Chef Joachim Splichal and sommalier Silvestre Fernandes from Patina sharing their favorite cheese, chocolate and wine pairings, and wouldn’t you know it — they’re recommending a cheese that I carry in the shop!

Click on the image above to see the whole spread, or just come into the shop to get some of this amazing cheese!  Chef Splichal says of the cheese, “It’s a washed rind cheese that is aged for about six weeks, with an extremely soft texture that gives it a rich mouth-feel and an aroma that hints of spice.”

Whichever way you choose, our Cheese of the Month Club will supply you with ample cheese to dance on your palate and sophisticate your cheese acumen!

Have cheese delivered right to your doorstep every month with our Cheese of the Month Club. We’ve put a lot of thought into this special program, which we think is perfect for any cheese enthusiast. The Cheese of the Month Club also makes a great gift.

Each delivery includes three ½ lb. cheeses, along with our descriptive Cheese Cards, detailed profiles and photos of the cheesemakers and regions of origin, beverage pairing suggestions, and Andrew’s personal tasting notes.

Cheese of the Month Club membership is $40 a month plus minimal shipping charges. If you live between the San Fernando Valley and Palos Verdes, delivery fee is $5. Otherwise, we charge $45 plus FedEx rates in which case you can contact us for pricing. Pay your membership in advance, or have us bill you monthly—it’s up to you.

For more info, give us a call or email us.

Hi, I’m Andrew; this is my shop. We’re at 728 Montana right on the corner of Lincoln. If you’re looking for a great date night idea, or even if you’re looking to meet somebody, or if you want to socialize with some other people that live locally, we do this event called Grilled Cheese & Beer. It’s a blast. We do four different open-faced grilled cheese sandwiches — all different recipes, some of them have several cheeses; some of them have one. A lot of them have other ingredients that are really fun besides that. And we pair each cheese with a different one of these specialty beers that we carry in the shop. We try to pair the flavors really well and we do this really fun beer and ice cream float afterwards. It’s a blast; you should come.
To find out in advance about when the Grilled Cheese & Beer comes on sale, the best way to do it is to get onto our website, sign up for our e-mail list. We blast out the dates whenever they are released. It’s a very, very popular event so if you get on the e-mail list, there’s no favoritism — if you get the e-mail, sign up as soon as you can because they sell out in a matter of hours.
The website is www.AndrewsCheese.com with no punctuation. Our phone number is (310)393-3308. Our hours are M-F 11a-7p; Sat. 10a-7p and Sunday 11a-6p. We’re only closed on Christmas and New Years.
