Chic Fromageries in London

When the city of London comes to mind, the cosmopolitan capital is one big stage for arts, culture and cuisine from all corners of the globe. And yet, with France just a short journey across the capital, one would never think to find a thriving cheese culture. As it turns out, the local scene is well worth writing home about. LUXOS highlights the best fromageries in London.

La Fromagerie is perhaps the most high-class cheese bar in Londontwon, with a selection of cheese from around the world. Guests can sample cheese from France, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Ireland, Spain, Holland, Portugal, Austria, Germany, Norway, The United States, and even from Britain. Aside from the rich aromas, textures and flavours on offer, the bar hosts events including children’s workshops, dinner workshops, and geographically-inspired workshops. The menu changes with four different varieties offered throughout the week. La Fromagerie is more than just a cheese bar, it is a full on experience.
