We could not have pulled out of New York so confidently without the help of our friend, and fellow cheese enthusiast, Anne Saxelby. She has taken our cat Chubbs in for the next four months. Although Chubbs does not eat cheese he definitely enjoys the company of people who are crazy about cheese so Anne’s Brooklyn apartment seemed like the ideal summer home for him.
Anne’s cat care offer is particularly magnanimous given that she is opening a cheese shop of her own called SAXELBY CHEESEMONGERS in NEW YORK CITY this coming SATURDAY MAY 6th at the ESSEX STREET MARKET on the Lower East Side. Anne’s shop will focus on American cheeses. Comfortable behind the counter, in the barn, and up to her elbows in curd, we think Anne will make the most exceptional proprietor.
We are sad that we will miss the opening day but we want to encourage anyone who is in New York this weekend to head down to the Essex Street Market for her grand opening on Saturday.
