Cheese, cheese and more cheese...that's what you'll find at Auntie Em's Marketplace, located in the little storefront next to Auntie Em's in Eagle Rock. We stopped by the opening last night, had some nice wine and tasted the dips from Grassroots dips. Besides a carefully edited selection of cheese, owner Terri has also chosen jams and sauces, raw honey from Elysian Park, candies, frozen Auntie Em's specialties to take home and really cute vintagey kitchenware. And who doesn't need a box of decorated sugar cubes? Try some scamorza on your next homemade pizza, or taste the Lamb Chopper from Cypress Grove. Speaking of Lamb Chopper, don't miss Leslie Brenner's droll takedown of the Belvedere Restaurant at the Peninsula Hotel in the L.A. Times food section.
