Rhuaridh Buchanan passed up the chance to work at Thomas Keller’s Per Se in New York, choosing to train as an affineur with historic British cheesemonger Paxton & Whitfield instead. If that means anything to you, you’ll know it’s a big deal. If that doesn’t mean anything to you, well, it’s a big deal. Keller’s loss is our gain, as we’ve got Buchanan’s Cheesemonger cheese shop here, the place to purchase fine cheeses and other dairy items, as well as eggs, freshly sliced charcuterie, bread from Gail’s Bakery and fresh fruit and veg from Natoora. The offering changes daily according to what’s ripe and at its best in the shop’s maturing rooms.
