A friend of mine, we shall call him Andrew to protect his identity (his real name is Andrew), also works at a cheese shop.
I went to visit him on my day off. Because what could be better on a day off from my cheese shop but to visit a different cheese shop?!
He works for Saxelby Cheesemongers at the Essex Street market. For those that haven't been to the Essex Market recently, it's a great place to visit if you like to look at a lot of old Hispanic folks, need to get some Heritage Meats, or generally enjoy markets.
There are several awesome things about this market.
One of which is Saxelby. They have great cheese. They did not pay me to endorse them.
Their shtick is only stocking cheese from the North East of AMERICA. Yeah that's right, suck it European cheese. (except Parmesan, you sir, can stay)
Anyway I got this frickin' grilled cheese and it was awesome.
Yes. This is three pictures of the same grilled cheese sandwich.
That's how good it was to eat. You should see the pictures I took that didn't make the cut. Naughty stuff.
