The Love Story Behind Saxelby’s ‘Valentine’s Dinner for Two’
In 2009, Anne Saxelby met Patrick Martins, founder of Heritage Foods USA and the Heritage Radio Network. Patrick asked Anne to do a cheese-centric radio show for his fledgling internet radio station. At first, she thought ‘no way!’. After all, running a small business is an 8 day a week job. But they decided to go out for a beer and chat about it….
Four years and a wedding later, Anne and Patrick are happily married, and Saxelby Cheesemongers and Heritage Foods are united in more ways than one! Not only do both companies share the same ethos for supporting the work of small artisan food producers, this is literally the dinner that Anne and Patrick have at their house at least once a week.
Valentine’s Dinner for Two – $99
Our ‘Valentine’s Dinner For Two’ features two 14-16 ounce Wagyu steaks from Heritage Foods USA (the best and butteriest steaks that money can buy) and two fabulous farmstead cheeses – Cabot Clothbound Cheddar from the Cellars at Jasper Hill Farm and Cupid’s Choice Camembert from Old Chatham Sheepherding. Just add a bottle of bubbly (ok, and maybe a salad) and voila! Best. Valentine. Ever.
Each gift comes packaged in Saxelby’s signature wooden gift box and includes approximately 32 ounces of steak, 14 ounces of cheese, and best of all, a custom printed Valentine’s card! And yes, you can be as mushy as you please with the gift notes… we cheesemongers are lovers, not haters.
*Please note that steaks will arrive frozen, so please allow for time to defrost before cooking.
Happy Valentine’s Day from the cheese lovers at Saxelby Cheesemongers!
