Town Hall Meeting

This Week at Saxelby Cheesemongers: Town Hall Meeting About the Future of the Essex Street Market, New Cheeses, and a Fresh Episode of Cutting the Curd!

Essex Market Old

Show your support this Wednesday, April 18th by attending a public meeting to discuss the future of the Essex Street Market. The city has presented its ULURP plan (a big crazy achronym for land use) for the SPURA redevelopment project, but still has not committed one way or the other as to what the fate of the market will be. The vendors of the Essex Market need to get the straight story on what the city’s plans are, and need to be considered as stakeholders in this process. Support your market by coming to this very important public meeting!
For a summary of the SPRUA ULURP plan, click here to read the LoDown’s recap.

New Cheese in the Cave!
Saxelby Cheesemongers is proud to introduce two new members to our cheesy lineup. Read all about ’em, or better yet, come by for a taste!
berlebergBerleberg
Raw cows’ milk. Berle Farms, Hoosick, NY
This cheese is a dense, buttery and grassy gem from Beatrice Berle and her crew. Made from certified organic raw milk, the cheese is aged for upward of 6 months and has a tawny washed rind. Berleberg is a natural for munching or crafting that perfect cheese sandwich. Toothsome and hearty with a touch of bite.
shepsogShepsog
Raw sheep and cows’ milk.
Grafton Village Cheese, VT
Shepsog means sheep in Native American Algonquin, and its fitting that this cheese should pay homage to that creature’s incredibly rich milk. A mixed milk cheese unlike any we’ve ever tasted… Shepsog is sweet, caramelly, nutty, & mouthwateringly delicious. Cave aged at Grafton Village Cheese in Vermont, this is one that we look forward to eating a lot more of!

Get Thee to a Bagelry!

This Week at Saxelby Cheesemongers: Get Thee to a Bagelry… Saxelby’s Got Local Cream Cheese!

jones family farmThe best things come to those who wait. Or so the old saying goes… though I was beginning to have some serious doubts that we’d ever find a delicious local cream cheese. This week, we thank goodness for the Jones Family Farm up in Herkimer, NY and their tangy, schmearable Kuyahoora Crème Cheese! One little spoonful will leave you with a bagel hankering so strong, you might be spontaneously teleported the three blocks from Essex Market down to Grand Street and the venerable Kossar’s, purveyors of the best bagels and bialys in town.
What makes this Kuyahoora Crème so delightful? Chalk it up to the Jones Family Farm having access to the best cows’ milk in the Mohawk Valley, a verdant, fertile parcel o’ land nestled in the Adirondack foothills. Under the skillful watch of the Jones family cheese makers, the rich, fatty cows’ milk is turned into a supple, silky, spreadable cheese that is tangy, salty, and graced with a high note of sweet cream. Our message to cream cheese lovers: Keeping up with the Joneses has never been so delicious!

Stay tuned each and every Monday for a different grilled cheese sandwich!

Kick Off National Grilled Cheese Month with Saxelby Cheesemongers! 
(as if we really needed an excuse)  
 
Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month?! Well, to be completely honest, we didn’t know either until quite recently… but man are we excited about it! Each and every week, Saxelby Cheesemongers will be debuting a different, tantalizingly melty and delicious grilled cheese sandwich for you to savor. Check out this week’s scrumptious sandwich at our shop and indulge your inner five-year-old:
 
grilled cheese‘The Classic’ 
You asked for it, and we delivered! Who needs anything fancy when you’ve got amazing bread, sinfully rich butter, and great farmstead cheese? We put a hefty slice of Shelburne Farm cheddar betwixt two slices of pullman bread liberally slathered with butter from Trickling Springs Farm. Why mess with perfection, we ask?
 
Stay tuned each and every Monday for a different grilled cheese sandwich!

Tune in to a fresh episode of Cutting the Curd TODAY from 5:30-6:00pm on the Heritage Radio Network, or download the show as a podcast and listen anytime!
Today we’ll be talking about the other side of kidding season on the farm. Just a few weeks back we interviewed cheese makers about kidding season and the arrival of fresh goat cheeses to the market. However, on every farm there’s pretty much a 50/50 ratio of girl kids (doelings) and boy kids (bucklings). What happens to the bucklings, who don’t really have a place on a dairy farm? 
We’ll chat with two innovators: Jonny Hunter of Madison Wisconsin’s Underground Food Collective and Erin Fairbanks of  Heritage Foods USA to see how chefs are utilizing goat meat. Did you know that goat meat makes up the majority of meat consumed across the globe? Or that Americans import an incredible amount of goat meat each year, while local goat resources go unused? Tune into this fascinating episode and learn about America’s burgeoning goat meat movement!
