Maker & Monger
Internationally recognised cheesemonger Anthony Femia has built a mecca for people who love cheese.
From a restored French food cart, Maker & Monger is running a grilled cheese and raclette bar. Soon he will set up with a permanent shop.
Femia is internationally recognised in the world of cheese. His exposure to European cheese culture in places such as London and France has been the inspiration behind the specialised focus of Maker & Monger. An accompanying cold bar with eight matching alcohol options will be installed later in the year.
This is a one-stop shop (/cart) for all things melting, from traditional Swiss raclette (a fondue-esque fromage melt) over potatoes with a side of pickles, to an All-American Grilled Cheese. It also offers Mork hot chocolate and hot apple cider. It all emulates the European market stall authenticity Femia is inspired by.
Femia stresses quality and history over quantity – the permanent shop will hold a selection of just 25 cheeses from all around the world. The selection will change seasonally to expose customers to new cheeses and to educate them in affinage: a holistic appreciation of cheese.
