This Week at Saxelby Cheesemongers...
Cheese & Sake at Family Recipe,

Plus Cheese Sculptor Sarah Kaufmann
on Cutting the Curd!


Cheese & sake. Fermented odd couple or match made in heaven?
We definitely believe the latter to be true!
Our first ever cheese & sake pairing prompted us to do a little bit
of research about this delicious quaffable tradition...
Here's a little sake trivia for your Monday morning
(hey, why the heck not?)

___________________________________________________
There are over 80 varieties of rice used to make sake.
The process of making sake is more similar to brewing beer
than it is to making wine
(which makes it a great culinary companion for cheese!)
The first mention of sake in Japanese writing dates
back to the third century AD.
In 1907, the first ever government organized sake tasting
and competition was organized.
In Japanese, sake, or o-sake, refers to alcoholic beverages in general.
The Japanese call true sake 'Nihonshu'

Join us next Tuesday night, December 6th,
for a three course prix fixe menu featuring
cheese & sake pairings at Family Recipe,
a delicious new Japanese joint on the
Lower East Side.
For reservations ($60)
call Family Recipe at 212-529-3133

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.

Raclette: Keeping Folks Warm Since 1200 AD
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!
