Join Saxelby Cheesemongers and a whole host of purveyors of regional edibles this Saturday, May 22nd for an afternoon of delicious morsels, all cooked and eaten in support of the New Amsterdam Market! The market season kicks off in June, but this’ll be a tasty sneak preview…

Imagine this quiet, verdant space bustling with stalls of savory food! This Saturday, in our undying devotion to all things fermented, Saxelby Cheesemongers will be debuting our grilled cheese and kimchi (yes kimchi!) sandwich at New Amsterdam Market’s City of Merchants. We’re stuffing a Tom Cat Bakery focaccia pocket with Hillcrest Dairy cheese curds and MILKimchi’s spicy Napa Cabbage, and grilling it to gooey, melty perfection. Just as Bahn Mi broke all the rules between French and Vietnamese culture (to delicious effect) this sandwich is a New York City cross-cultural mishmash of spicy, cheesy, green goodness. Wash it down with a refreshing pint from Jimmy’s no. 43 or, for the hardcore, a homemade kombucha. Trust us, your tummy will thank you!

Also, check out this past week’s episode of Cutting the Curd on the Heritage Radio Network. I interview Betsy and Rachel Devine of Salvatore BKLYN about their incredible ricotta cheese, as well as the life and love of Mr. Salvatore himself. Be forewarned, there’s some homespun cheesy poetry woven throughout the show… Haikus and limericks abound.
Till next week! Eat cheese and be merry!
