Victory Cheese is a movement to sustain America’s artisan cheesemakers by uniting dairy farmers, cheesemakers, and YOU, the cheese loving public during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond. 10% of the profits will go to the American Cheese Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting America's artisan cheesemakers.
Saxelby Cheesemongers partnered with Effie’s Homemade Biscuits to create three perfect pairings of cheese, biscuits, and accompaniments. Each box contains 3 boxes of Effie's cakes, three cheeses totaling over 1lb, honey, jam, and spiced pecans.
Pairing # 1 - Effie’s Oatcakes, Shelburne Farms 2 Year Cheddar, Quince and Apple Tart Cherry and White Tea Preserves
Shelburne 2 Year Cheddar - Bright, fruity, sharp cheddar with a creamy texture and a long finish from one of Vermont's first artisan cheesemakers.
Effie’s Oatcakes - Made from a fourth-generation recipe, these British-style oatcakes layer toasted oats and a hint of salt to achieve the perfect balance of sweet and savory.
Quince and Apple Tart Cherry and White Tea Jam - Cherry preserves that tow the line between sweet and tart... when combine with cheddar and oatcakes, you've basically got a cherry shortcake!
Bayley Hazen Blue - One of our perennially favorite blue cheeses, Bayley Hazen blue is dense, fudgy, and mushroomy with notes of anise seed, and chocolate.
Effie’s Ryecakes - Reminiscent of traditional European country breads, Effie’s crisp and buttery Rye Biscuits feature stone-ground rye, toasted walnuts and a dash of caraway.
Catskill Provisions Wildflower Honey - Seasonal wildflower honey so pure you can taste what the bees taste -- clover, apple, pear blossom in the spring and chestnut, maple, and asters in the fall. A perfect condiment to pair with blue cheese!
Pairing #3 - Effie’s Cocoacakes, Kunik, and Zingerman’s Spiced Pecans
Kunik - As we like to say here at Saxelby Cheese - Kunik is a soft, triple cream cheese that is kind of like goat milk gelato with a rind... Decadent is an understatement. Trust us, you'll love it.
Effie’s Cocoacakes - These lightly sweet biscuits combine malted cocoa and crisp layers of oats and toasted coconut for a unique and delicious treat!
Zingerman’s Spiced Pecans - Who says you can't eat nuts that taste like Christmas all year long? Certainly not these cheesemongers... Toasty and sweet with a blend of warm spices, these pecans are divine when crunched alongside a rich, creamy cheese like Kunik.
