Peck Slip Pickle Festival This Sunday at New Amsterdam Market, Plus the State of Cheese in North Dakota!

Yesterday we all fell back (and hopefully slept in!) for the coming of shorter days and wintry weather. In anticipation of frosty days ahead, Saxelby Cheesemongers, like true cheese gladiators, have been relentlessly preparing for the onslaught of winter with the best chill-fighting weapon we know… No, it’s not that fancy ‘Heat Tech’ clothing line from Uniqlo, it’s a solution much more primeval: melted cheese.

This weekend at the New Amsterdam Market’s Peck Slip Pickle Festival, you can be the first to sample the goodies from our brand-spanking-new Raclette machine! This little beauty (we like to refer to it as the ‘Turbo Cheese Melter 2K11’ or sometimes just ‘TCM2K11’ for short) will be cranking away, melting delicious Reading Raclette from Spring Brook Farm in Vermont. Together with some B&B’s, classic tangy-sweet bread & butter pickles from Rick’s Pick’s, and bread from Orwasher’s Bakery, this is a cold-busting nosh you’d be a fool to miss!
