It’s about time. After five long years and many outdoor
grilled-cheesing stints (Pickle Day, Brooklyn Flea, and New Amsterdam Market to name a few) Saxelby Cheesemongers is serving up our very own grilled cheese sandwiches right in the Essex Market!
Hot Off the Press! Grilled Cheese at Saxelby Cheesemongers
Now, we know what you’re thinking… Where in the h@*# are they going to fit a sandwich press in that ridiculously small shop? Well, thanks to a tiny but tremendous countertop expansion perpetrated by our good friend Dave Liatti of 61 Local, we’ve got the extra inches necessary to house one lean, mean, cheese-grilling machine.
The menu features just one sandwich at a time, and will change weekly, giving grilled cheese lovers all over town something to look forward to each and every Monday.
We’ve dubbed our first sandwich the P-Cubed: Pawlet, Pickles, and Prosciutto (of the American variety by S. Wallace Edwards and Sons of Surry, Virginia) Just think… all that goodness packed between two slices of Seven Grain Pullman from Pain d’Avignon, and heartily slathered with 91% butterfat butter (yes, we said 91% butterfat) from Trickling Springs Farm.
Come on over this week and be the first to try one! And now for next week’s cheesy happenings…
Tenement Talks: Public Markets
With Robert LaValva, Anne Saxelby, and Suzanne Wasserman
Tuesday, March 27th at 6:30 pm, 103 Orchard Street
Join us at the venerable LES institution the Tenement Museum for an eye-opening talk on New York’s public markets. Before the supermarket or the corner grocery, New Yorkers shopped for food at public markets, city-owned venues of staggering bounty and social diversity. Explore the past, present and future of this extraordinary institution. Jane Ziegelman hosts.
Today we’ll be talking with the gals from Edible Manhattan
about the Dairy Issue! Editor Gabrielle Langholtz & Deputy Editor Rachel Wharton join us in studio for a behind the scenes look at the r&d that went into crafting this spring’s milk-centric tomme.
