For years, relatives of Zeferino Garcia in Mexico's Oaxaca state routinely sent him a cargo of quesillo cheese by airplane. From Tijuana, the bulk of unpasteurized cheese would be brought to his restaurant and two stores in Los Angeles. Life was good, he thought, and tasty. "If you don't have quesillo from Oaxaca, you practically can't have a Oaxacan restaurant," said Garcia, 43. Then three months ago, a health inspector first came to his store and told him he was breaking the law by selling unlicensed, unpasteurized cheese.

Moreover, the effects were more pronounced among overweight or obese children, according to the study published Monday in the journal Pediatrics. Researchers from Cornell University randomly sorted 201 children from the Chicago area in grades three to six into four groups: just chips, just cheese, just vegetables, cheese and vegetables.

THE plate with five different cheeses seems such an elegant thing. But leave it to restaurants and food photographers. At home, there is nothing better than one cheese in perfect condition served with just the right drink.

While I enjoyed reading Jonathan Gold's Counter Intelligence review of Cassell's (May 21), it is unfortunate that, distracted by the deservedly renown hamburgers, Mr. Gold apparently has never tried the excellent grilled cheese sandwiches. They are probably the best on the continent and certainly the largest. A very generous portion of cheese is perfectly melted on the largest imaginable slices of of first-rate, thinly sliced, fresh rye (or egg) bread. A business acquaintance who kept kosher introduced them to me in 1979.
