This week, Saxelby Cheesemongers is chock full of cheesy tidbits for you to munch on. From Sundays at Essex Market to Leonard Lopate and the Locavores, read on to see what’s new in the world of American farmstead fromage.
First things first. After much lobbying and petitioning and conversing with the neighborhood, the Essex Street Market will be open on Sundays from 10 am to 6 pm starting this Sunday, November 7th! And this isn’t just a holiday stunt… we’ll be open on Sundays from here on out to help you get your groceries any day of the week you please! Thanks to all of you who took time to sign our petition to make this happen. We’re super excited to continue to make the market a fantastic neighborhood food destination. Come on by this Sunday to shop and show your support!
Next Monday, November 8th, Saxelby Cheesemongers will be hanging with WNYC’s Leonard Lopate for a special series ‘Lopate and Locavores!’ Join us at the Greene Space for an evening of agri + culture… or how fermentation and cheese make the world go round. Anne Saxelby, Michael Lee of Twig Farm, and Keith McNally will discuss the connections cheese makes between rural and urban, farm and restaurant, and person to person. This is sure to be a fiddle playin’, goat ricotta makin’, good conversatin’ night! ‘Lopate and Locavores’ is a three part series, so check ’em all out to get your fill of farming, greens, chickens, and cheese!
Need something cheesy to podcast?? Tune in to Cutting the Curd on the Heritage Radio Network! For our special Halloween episode, Anne Saxelby and Shanna Pacifico of Back Forty (and some other surprise guests!) talk scary cheese on the scariest day of the year. Hear about terrifying cheese mishaps, creepy crawlies that make cheese delicious, and Kraft American Singles, aka ‘cheese analog’ Yikes! If you’ve got cheesy horror stories of your own to share, tweet ’em on in to the HRN Twitter feed.
‘Til next week, stay cheesy!
