Men Of AOB

Benjamin Armel

"Infused with our distinctive touch for truly unique creations."

We aim to expand our cheese selection with unique offerings. Our Mexican mozzarella, consists of a deeper, more robust flavor. Then there's our Crottin de chèvre, a tangy goat cheese that offers a refreshing twist. Our Kempe Knolle, inspired by Belper Knolle with a peppery flavour.
Each cheese in our collection boasts its own distinct character, crafted with care to provide a truly unique tasting experience.

"My inspiration for starting a cheese shop stemmed from my lifelong love for cheese, nurtured by my French upbringing."

After living in India for a decade without finding the quality cheeses I craved, my partner and I explored cheese making during lockdown, initially for personal enjoyment. Surprised by the enthusiastic response from friends and family, we decided to turn our hobby into a business. Though we initially considered importing French specialties, logistical challenges led us to focus on crafting our own cheeses. Thus, the concept for our cheese shop emerged.
 
 

"If everything were too easy, it wouldn't be as fulfilling."

"The Fox and the Crow"

We named our cheese shop 'Nari & Kāge' after carefully considering its meaning. "We combined French and Indian cultures, inspired by the  fable from Aesop and Jean de La Fontaine 'The Fox and the Crow', where 'Nari and 'Kāge' represent 'fox' and 'crow'. 'Nari', reminiscent of the Hindi word for 'woman', adds depth to our story. We envisioned a more positive ending for the fable, symbolizing unity and the sharing of cheese, which reflects our values. "Hence, 'Nari and Kāge'.

Q & A with Benjamin

"Patience, tolerance, and a willingness to understand.........."

It's a lot of learning, When you come to a new country, you come with your own mindset, rules and logic so you have to actually reset your brain a little bit to understand how the country works.  
Patience and understanding are essential virtues. After a decade in India, returning to France feels strange, but patience is key to navigating the differences.
