If you live in Los Angeles and have ever been to The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills or Silver Lake, then you have probably tried some of Dominick DiBartolomeo’s products. And if you haven’t, then you should.

Italians have a saying: “Ars longa, vita brevis,” meaning, “Art is long, life is short.” I think it’s about time we learn a lesson from the Italians, press pause on our busy lives, and instead relax and enjoy food as art. Especially when the food looks this good.
