This month we will celebrate the “culinary arts” with a presentation and cheese tasting by Solange Comer, owner of Cultured Slice in Hermosa Beach.


Cultured Slice serves quality, hard to find, artisan and gourmet cheese from around the world and a variety of delicious pairings to compliment them.
