Date of Last Visit: Sunday, June 15

The Victim: Me

The Damage: About £10 for two hunks of cheese and little lemon tart.

The Background: Sometimes I think about what I would do with myself if I were independently wealthy. (Surely I can’t be alone in this.) Thinking about all the possibilities can keep me occupied for HOURS.

Although I don’t claim to be overly passionate about cheese, I do like cheese. And I like cheese shops. And I really liked La Fromagerie in Highbury where I was so overwhelmed by the amount of goat’s cheese on offer that I surrendered myself to the somewhat surly cheesemonger and had him pick me out two. I would tell you what I ended up with, but he didn’t really tell me (but nor did I ask), and they didn’t put any information about the cheeses in my bag. (Is it really that hard?) So now f I go back, I’m going to have to start all over again.

So when I have the millions that I deserve, I will open a cheese shop. A friendly and helpful one. Really people, is it really that hard?

The Verdict: I’ll ask more questions next time.

Strange experience. I’ve always had nice service at their spot on Moxon St…

It should say on your receipt what you bought.

I tried five cheeses recently at Dal Pescatore that you might like! I don’t know if they’re available here though, but they’re mentioned in my upcoming post this Friday…

Although I love their cheese, the service is borderline arsey sometimes, as if you’re disturbing them. If you’re in the area again though, head up the road to Au Lac for some excellent Vietnamese or The Clock Cafe for superb coffee and cake.

try neals yard dairy on park street near the borough market and if it’s french cheese you covet then try mons who stand in the borough every week, they’re more relaxed, more knowledgeable and more helpful.
