Go west, young cheese cart. LQ's cheese cart is taking a trip, rolling out of its current home at Starry Kitchen in downtown L.A. to visit Hancock Park wine shop Domaine LA. The cart will have almost 40 cheeses, and the sommeliers at Domaine LA will pair up to a dozen wines with them. Expect a Savennieres, a Barbera and an Eiswein from Austria, among others. As usual, the pairings are a mix of traditional and unconventional: a Sauternes with your blue cheese but also an apple cider from Normandy. Never fear, the vagabond cheese cart will return to Starry Kitchen.
Tantalizing Rumor of the Day: LQ namesake and chef extraordinaire Laurent Quenioux will be doing an 18-course truffle dinner in November that will be made public through his email list.
When: 2 – 4 p.m., October 16
Cost: $25 for 3 cheeses and 3 wines. (Special advance price of $20 via the website). Additional samples can be added on the day of the event for $4 per cheese or $5 per wine.
