This Week at Saxelby Cheesemongers
Well, another week is upon us, and a rainy one at that. This musty Monday morning, Saxelby Cheesemongers would like to wish you good cheer and thoughts of cheese and sunshine in the forthcoming weeks! Yep, we’re back on the cheese trail, and want to invite you out for a night or two of good old-fashioned fermented fun. So mark your calendars, ignore the rain, and get ready to eat some cheese!
The party starts tomorrow (why wait?) when Anne Saxelby and Rick Field of Rick’s Picks team up for a Slow Food-style salon about the business of being local. We’ll be eating some killer pickles, savory cheeses, and telling stories about the experience of being a slow entrepreneur in New York City.

And comin’ round the mountain next week, Saxelby Cheesemongers and the folks over at Back Forty are rolling out the welcome mat for springtime with a stellar lineup of seasonal beers and cheeses. For those of you who don’t know Back Forty, Peter Hoffman’s rustic new restaurant in the East Village, you are in for a treat! We’ll be serving up some hard-to-find craft beers and farmstead cheese, and discussing what makes these seasonal pairings really shine.
