I’m not sure if anyone loves cheese as much as I do but it’s pretty out of control. With that being said, I was extremely excited to check out Milkfarm, an artisan cheese shop in Eagle Rock, near Glendale. They carry over a hundred different cheeses from a variety of countries. The cheeses are on a rotation depending on season and availability. The owner, Leah Park Fierro, is a pastry chef - made cheese monger - who has worked over 15 years in the food industry.
Once you walk in, the setting is very bright and rustic. One can come in for lunch and order charcuterie or sandwiches that change every day. The one sandwich that you can always count on being there is their Grilled Cheese. It was rich, gooey and full of flavor. For charcuterie, options include prosciutto, jamon, porchetta, pates, sausages and other meats.
If you don’t have time to eat there, grab a wine, or seasonal jam, bread, cheese and take it to go. Another option is their Picnic Box. For $30, they sell ready-to-go picnic boxes, which include two pieces of cheese, salami, olives, cornichons, seasonal fresh fruit or grapes and a half baguette. Perfect for that picnic on the beach or a day in the park.
Not only is Milkfarm LA a cheese shop, you can find an abundance of flat breads, baked pretzels, pies and tarts. So, if you’re in that area, and it’s nice out, consider picking up a picnic box and head outside to enjoy this amazing September weather. Need some inspiration?
