LA WEEKLY - Norbert Wabnig: Der Kasehandler

May 2010
Norbert Wabnig likes to tell the story of how, on his way to apply for a $1.80-an-hour job in 1975 at the Cheese Store in Beverly Hills -- which he now owns -- he was nearly run over by James Caan in his Porsche. The Cheese Store was like that, the kind of place where locals, European expats and movie stars alike would wander in for a wedge of Manchego (Wabnig's current favorite) or Bleu de Bocage or Époisses. "Cary Grant would come in. Dustin Hoffman, he still comes in. I met Laurence Olivier. Fred Astaire would walk up and down the street."
