Apparently Eagle Rock has had an underground artisanal cheese fan club just waiting for an affineur to open shop. They surfaced in April when Lea Park Fierro, a former pastry chef and Cheese Store of Silver Lake alum, threw open the doors to Milkfarm and local crowds poured in. Dozens of domestic and imported wheels and slabs fill an open case that looks like a Dutch Master’s still life painting. Supplementing the many varieties is an array of charcuterie and a case full of sandwiches on rustic, crusty loaves from Bread Lounge. Four kinds of cheese fill a grilled sandwich (which changes daily) and beef is roasted in house. At the back of the shop, several tables accommodate eating in. The store carries a beautifully curated collection of locally made boutique food specialties that make wonderful host and hostess gifts.
