So, we go from last week’s flies to this weekend’s Flea! That’s right. Saxelby Cheesemongers is joining the Brooklyn Flea with a grilled cheese and pickle sandwich that’ll knock your ever-loving socks off.
This spring and summer at the Brooklyn Flea, Saxelby Cheesemongers is teaming up with Consider Bardwell Farm to solve the age-old question: is melted cheese the only thing better than cheese itself? We’re pretty sure we know the answer to that one… but you should come by and weigh in on the debate for yourself! The molten cheesy goodness will be delivered in the form of the Saxelby Grilled Cheese Sandwich; a Tomcat Bakery focaccia, stuffed with Consider Bardwell Farm’s Pawlet cheese and a McClures’ spicy pickle, grilled to gooey perfection. At 5 bucks a pop, what’s not to love??
Sharing the same Brooklyn Flea berth, Consider Bardwell Farm’s mobile cheese-shop will sell its award-winning, handmade Vermont cheeses cut-to-order. The farm specializes in raw milk goat and cow’s milk cheeses. Pawlet, a delectable aged cows’ milk cheese, is a Saxelby favorite for cheese sandwiches of all persuasions, grilled or not. It is tangy and buttery, and has a bit of toasted hazelnut aroma packed in there somehow. The Vermont answer to Italian Fontina, but with more of that Yankee pluck we love so well.
The Brooklyn Flea kicks off this Saturday, April 18th at it’s outdoor location at Bishop Loughlin Memorial Highschool, Lafayette Ave between Clermont and Vanderbilt. There’ll be a grilled cheese waiting with your name on it!
