This week on Cutting the Curd, guest host Greg Blais and co-host Diane Stemple kick off the new radio season with a very special guest, none other than Anne Saxelby! Catching up with Anne, Greg and Diane start the show off discussing the culinary perks of Brooklyn as well as putting the guest on the spot asking about her journey with cheese. Though growing up in the midwest and going to college at New York University for art, it wasn’t until she took a trip to Italy that she truly discovered the allure of cheese. Upon coming back to New York, she took a job at Murray’s Cheese Shop (where she met Diane) and a wine shop, gaining some great experience. After the break, the group shares thoughts on the start of Saxelby Cheesemongers. Tune in for a fun show where we get the full story behind Anne. This program was brought to you by The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.
“With cheese you eat it, you like it, you don’t. You make a judgement call and I love the immediacy of it.” [11:21]
“I never felt at home in the big store, and I always thought that I’d like to do something on my own.” [13:50]
“My goal is always to be a bridge between the farm and the people eating the cheese.” [26:08]
