Hooray! Turkey day is almost here. It’s time to pull out the old shopping list and plan for hours (and in some cases days!) of cooking. It’s gonna be a long and delicious weekend… We’re talking lots of time in the kitchen, relatives coming and going, cooks cooking, and tempting smells issuing forth from ovens to waft around the house and incite episodes of drooling and acute tummy rumbling. Saxelby Cheesemongers thinks it would be wise, and indeed prudent, to have a spread of cheese out on the table to keep the hungry masses at bay!
We’ve got a whole slew of fermented fixes for your Thanksgiving dinner regimen… From our Turkey Day Triumvirate, a ready made cheese plate, to special deals on our most coveted cheeses, as well as a small arsenal of fatty cooking ingredients, stop by Saxelby’s to stock your fridge with local dairy goodness.
Our Turkey Day Triumvirate (now just $30!) is perfect remedy for the busy cheese lover this week. We’ve taken all the hard work of choosing out of the equation and have crafted a delicious cheese selection for you and your fellow cheese heads! All packed up in a cute wooden box, this Triumvirate features three hearty wedges of our favorite cheese… Pleasant Ridge Reserve, a nutty and sweet raw cows’ milk cheese, Mont St. Francis, a surprisingly fruity and gamey goat cheese, and Bayley Hazen Blue, that classic, fudgy blue that’s sure to leave everyone clamoring for more.
In the dairy department, Saxelby Cheesemongers has your cooking needs covered. Farmstead butter, eggs, organic milk and cream, creme fraiche, buttermilk, and fresh ricotta by the pound will make your sweet and savory dishes that much moreso…
And last but not least, let’s not forget our cheese of the week. We’ve taken a caprine turn this Monday morning and who better to single out than our favorite (un)Lazy Lady, Laini Fondiller! Her Valencay, a tangy truncated pyramid of chevre, will be on special this week for $6.99 per piece. It’s the perfect piece of cheese to bring along to dinner. Who wouldn’t love a beautiful little morsel of chevre to crown their cheese plate? We can’t think of anyone, but then again, I guess we’re a bit biased in that department…
Till next week… Gobble Gobble up some cheese!
