Meet Zoey Sachs, Cheesemonger and Director of Education. Hailing from Brooklyn, Zoey has been working in the cheese industry for more than ten years. Whether you find her behind the cheese case, or teaching “Cheese 101: How to Become a Curd Nerd”, Zoey balances her deep knowledge and experience with her quick wit and dry humor creating a memorable experience for every customer, be they cheese novices or affeciantos! Zoey loves offering customers the chance to explore, and expand, their flavor preferences by guiding them through tasting delicious standbys as well as unique and seasonal selections. Her current obsession is anything from Lazy Lady Farm in Vermont. A highlight for Zoey was competing in the elite Cheesemonger Invitational (which solidified her cheesemonger status)! Fun Fact: Zoey’s most unusual pairing suggestion - potato chips, truffle mousse and a small French chèvre, washed down with a sip of Bourbon..yes Bourbon!
Meet Dan Robinson, Cheesemonger and Cheese Buyer, hailing from across the pond - Kent, England. Chat him up, as he loves to share stories and lesser-known facts while sampling cheese selections you never knew you wanted (and, let’s face it, everything sounds better in a charming British accent)! Dan became fascinated with cheese as a child when visiting Calais and Ghent during family holidays. He was captivated by how “each wheel is the embodiment of the community and the land in which it was made”. Since he began his cheesemonger training in Portland OR, Cheddar has remained one of Dan’s true loves. That said, Dan spends a lot of his time working with domestic and international cheesemakers to curate Bedford Cheese Shop’s exceptional cheese case. A pairing he currently recommends is the funky delight of Tulip Tree Foglove along with Catskill Provisions Fall Honey, and a cheeky glass of Port; “it will make for a delightful treat”. Fun Fact: Dan once heard bloomy cheeses, such as brie and camembert, were historically prescribed by doctors for a range of ailments in France. Given that they are a probiotic - it doesn't seem too far fetched!
