Veteran Cheesemonger Fiona joined the team at Christmas in 2009. Her passion for excellent service and standards means she coaches and leads new team members during Christmas. Her warm and welcoming nature make her an engaging speaker. Her depth of knowledge and skill for mongering is impressive and she wants to encourage interaction between cheesemongers and customers: generating a trust in local food experts. After 15 years working in the national media as an Information Manager, Fiona decided to follow her heart and dedicate her time to working with food. In her spare time she has also embarked on social media food projects, food styling and creating and adapting her own menus.
