Cheese shop in Encino

I like Artisan Cheese but the Big Cheese would have been much closer to me. I was looking forward to the idea of walking over to my local cheese shop but that's not going to happen anymore :(

I have some bad news guys. I went over to the Farmer's Market a couple of weeks ago to buy some burrata from the cheese guy and to get the scoop on the shop. It turns out that the cost of construction to get everything up to code was going to cost him an insane amount of money. So he's now looking for a different location, like a failed yogurt shop, so that whatever he needs is already installed. If you notice, The Big Cheese Shop banner is no longer hanging in the store. I knew it was too good to be true!

If you'd like to get more info about "The Big Cheese", go to the Encino Farmer's Market on Sundays and look for the cheese guy. He's the owner of said store and last time I talked to him was back in August I think. At the time he said they were going to open in a month and obviously that hasn't happened. He was having issues with licensing and his business partner. I've seen people in there every once in a while but not much has changed in the interior. The owner did say if you see someone there, knock on the door and they can sell you some cheese.

Let me know if you guys hear anything. I've been waiting patiently!

Leftover white wine

I have some leftover Chardonnay that's been sitting in the fridge for more than two weeks. I've been meaning to throw it out but can I still use it for cooking? When is uncorked white wine too old for cooking?
