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 sales will go to Feeding America, a nationwide non-profit with a network of over 200 food banks that feed more than 46 million people.
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.
