Buchanans Cheesemonger is a centre of excellence for all things cheese. Passionate and experienced, we are really proud of our fresh, flexible and bespoke approach.


Rhuaridh established Buchanans Cheesemonger as a result of his fascination with delicious food and great service. He passed up the opportunity to work with Thomas Keller in New York to train as an affineur in the maturing rooms of world famous cheesemongers Paxton and Whitfield. Rhuaridh has since spent most of the last decade training and working with some of the most respected cheesemongers, cheese makers, affineurs and artisans.


Rhuaridh is particularly passionate about food service with almost 10 years at the coal face in some of the country’s top restaurants, he is acutely aware of the needs of a busy kitchen and what it takes to deliver the perfect plate of cheese.
