The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills is an essential resource for serious home cooks, as well as L.A.’s most acclaimed restaurants. Owner Norbert Wabnig is one of the nation’s most prominent authorities on cheese, continually scouring the globe for the finest and most intriguing varieties. More than 500 are offered here, along with an outstanding selection of wine, premium olive oils, balsamic vinegars, artisan salami, pâtés, honey—even black truffles and caviar. Gift baskets in all prices are available for holidays or special occasions, and the shop’s wine and cheese tastings are legendary. Wabnig and his knowledgeable staff, always generous with samples and advice on wine pairings, are accommodating to novices and famous chefs alike.
