Recently, Sapphire held a cheese and wine tasting for 5 Spoke Creamery, a new, small, artisanal producer of organic, raw milk cheeses from New York State. Sapphire Pantry is currently the only venue in California where it can be purchased. The charming and enthusiastic Alan Glustoff, the cheese maker, was a former food scientist who worked on developing such things as Cool Whip and Pudding Pops at General Foods.

Two Laguna Beach men, Adam Zuckerman, 37, and Jeff Greenough, 48, were among 23 defendants charged Nov. 7 with fraud in an FBI’s investigation into alleged multimillion-dollar leasing scams dubbed Operation Lease Fleece. Neither man has entered a plea to date, according to Department of Justice spokesman Thom Mrozek. Zuckerman, who owned and operated Brickbanc Capital in Costa Mesa, was charged with one count of mail fraud, Mrozek said. “There is no indication when he will appear in court or even if he has an attorney,” Mrozek said.

He tries to convey these things to the young — and the young-at-heart — who enter the doors of the small studio, tucked into a corner of the Albertsons parking lot on South Coast Highway.

And, oh yeah, the Laguna Beach Trophy Invitational returned after more than a 25-year absence for its 42nd incarnation.
