Andrew’s Cheese Shop In Santa Monica: ‘This Place Stinks!’:

Like a hot young single girl/guy in LA, there are very few people who don’t like cheese. Fittingly, cheese gets around, and it’s probably safe to say we’ve all seen it laced through eggs at breakfast, pressed between bread for lunch, draped over crostini (while flirting with wine for hors d’hoeuvres), melted beneath pasta for dinner, and occasionally naked lounging next to fruit during dessert.

With all the options, there are a lot of questions. Luckily, Andrew’s Cheese Shop has all the answers and more. You can pick up a sandwich for $9 or an outstanding picnic basket full of surprises.

Initially, I thought a cheese shop cultivated by a man who has been called Fromanger, Cheesemonger, and Affineur would open up like a ripe cavern teetering with molded rinds and sweating curds.

But the feel of Andrew’s cheese shop is quite the opposite: warm wood and welcoming smiles present bookshelves of wine and beer, crackers, jams and chocolate, a blackboard that lists the sandwiches of the day – and of course, the cheese case that leaves no cheese unloved and unnamed.

Love grilled cheese sandwiches and beer? Once a month Andrew pushes out a long communal in to the middle of his store and hosts a five-course grilled cheese tasting menu paired with beer for $45 per person.

My favorite aspect of Andrew’s Cheese Shop is that each cheese is attached with an index card that depicts country of origin, a bit of a bio/history, and a few notes on taste and beer/wine pairing. Anyone who can turn a cheese with a foreign name in to a flavor in English that belongs in my stomach should be exposed and rewarded.

So if you are looking for a bite to eat, a cheese for dinner, a fragrant gift, or even just an education, leave the nose plug at home and visit Andrew’s Cheese Shop (recommended: go hungry).
