Androuet is one of the few London shops I have yet to visit- on the list!
Henry Androuet wanted to teach Parisians of their rich cheese heritage in Paris opening up the first shop there in 1909 selling all sorts of cheeses from all regions in France.
5 years ago two brothers named Alex and Leo (Alex is the cheese-monger of the brothers). Both of them in their early 20’s came over to London with limited English, and they set up a Cheese stand in Spitalfields market.
It went so well they were able to open their own cheese shop- Androuet in Spitalfields. The brothers apply the same philosophy as the Parisian Androuet working hand in hand with the smallest farm producers in Europe with no middle man.
