This Week at Saxelby Cheesemongers
This week’s cheese update is dedicated to some cheeses that have been out of the shop for a while (due to personal obligations, book signing tours, Hawaiian vacations, you know, the usual…) We’ve managed to get them back to Saxelby Cheesemongers, and oh boy are we excited about it!
Bonnieview Farm Ben Nevis:
A delightful sheeps’ milk cheese from Vermont that tastes like crispy fresh cut grass mingled with toasted almonds and earth. An odd combination you say?! Well, alright, maybe it is. But one taste just might make a believer out of you.
Cato Corner Farm Bloomsday:
The rare and elusive Bloomsday… This cheese used to be made just once annually, on the anniversary of a day in the life of Leopold Bloom (from James Joyce’s Ulysses) but turned out to be so good, they had to make some more! Creamy and peanut-y and hearty to boot, this raw cows’ milk cheese is most probably what you’ve been craving.
Jasper Hill Farm Bartlett Blue:
It’s like Bayley Hazen’s fat drunk British cousin came rolling into town to show off his swagger. Dang this cheese is good! A Stilton-esque blue, Bartlett is rich and fruity with a viscous, thick, and creamy paste.
