Cheese for Dads Everywhere!

This Week at Saxelby Cheesemongers: 
Three Cheers for Cheesy Dads!

Ford Aerostar Minivan
We all know dads are cheesy. My own dad is no exception. Back in the late eighties/early nineties, he invented a phenomenon he referred to as ‘van dancing,’ which basically entailed him rolling down the windows of our space-aged Ford Aerostar minivan and making wild dance-y arm gestures out the window while listening to Aretha Franklin’s ‘Pink Cadillac’, turned up loud enough to make the sides of the van rattle.
And though we may roll our eyes (or in my case, hide under the seats) at our dads’ goofy antics, we wouldn’t have it any other way! This Father’s Day, we’re celebrating cheesy dads with a little gift we like to call ‘Fermented Father’s Day.’ It has all the things dads love best: cheese, beer (actually in one of the featured cheeses) and delicious pickles. So grab some burgers & buns, fire up the barbeque and let Saxelby Cheesemongers take care of the rest!

Each gift comes with two delectable cheeses and a hefty jar of ‘Kool Gherks’, Rick’s Picks’ take on the classic gherkin. Cheeses included are Harpersfield with Ommegang, a creamy, tangy, beer-soaked cows’ milk cheese from upstate New York, and Grafton Village Cheese Maple Smoked Cheddar, a stout aged cheddar cold smoked over maplewood. Perfect for burgers, picnics, or for that midnight snack! The smoke gives the cheese a decidedly bacony flavor, another food at the top of the ‘Things Dads Love’ list.
