Okay, my favorite things go like this. Scott, then corgis, then popcorn, then cheese. And I think wine and IPAs are in there somewhere. And queso. And guac. Okay there’s a bunch, but let’s move on to the point of this post. CHEESE! Scott and I made a visit to a new-ish cheese shop near our hood in LA, Wheel House. It’s a cute little spot filled with meats, charcuterie, olives, crackers, jams, and of course, CHEESE! Need a gift for mom this weekend? Cheese. Need a platter for a party? Cheese. We were a bit overwhelmed looking at the large selection of goodies. Blues, Bries, hard cheeses, soft cheeses. Oh good lawd, I was in paradise. Thankfully there were a couple very nice cheesemongers happy to steer us in the right direction. (Thanks Ben and Noble!) Ben let us try a few different cheeses and schooled us on the origin and how they were made. We ordered the Moses Sleeper brie-style and Bayley Hazen Blue from Jasper Hill, along with the Manchego-like Malvarosa from Spain. Shout out to Valencia and Vermont for making some dang good cheese! They were so amazing. Though we took our cheeses to go, we plan to come back to enjoy a cheese, meat and/or Paté board on their patio. By the way, my patio pic is a bit outdated. Their outdoor space now looks like this! So cool. Wheel House is in the process of getting their license to sell beer and wine (hopefully by next month!), but in the meantime you can bring your own wine. There’s no corkage fee and no need to bring glasses—they have you covered! Ben insisted that beer and cheese make a good couple, so I can’t wait to come back to get his recommendations. Wheel House also offers classes so be sure to sign up for their emails to get first dibs. Next time you’re in the mood for cheese, visit Wheel House. And bring a date!
