“If the Divine Creator has taken pains to give us delicious and exquisite things to eat, the least we can do is prepare them well and serve them with ceremony.”  - Ferdinand Point

Hello, I am Cindy Della Monica, owner of CHEESE CENTRAL. I have extensive experience in the food industry, teaching cooking classes for community centers was my first foray into food and hospitality, and that experience has been continued well past 35 years. My catering company provided upscale dining experiences in many venues from small and intimate meals, to large events in trade shows. Catering service to the Lodi wine industry led to ownership in an Italian-style deli and cheese counter, and, ultimately, my position as Chef de Cusine at Woodbridge Winery by Mondavi for many years. Described by many, my current business, CHEESE CENTRAL, is a gem of downtown Lodi. Love cheese? Come in to our shop today and experience our bright, comfortable atmosphere, smelling of good cheese, and greeted by our  warm smiles—welcome to CHEESE CENTRAL!
