The Great Grilled Cheese BookAugust 8, 2018 by Jenny
Which foods we delegate as comfort food are as different as each of our individual personalities. For me, growing up in a depressed midwestern town, I was served tomato soup and grilled cheese every Friday at our elementary school. Pulling off my gloves, red cheeked from the wintery playground after a die-hard round of four-square, I couldn’t wait to get into the cafeteria and sit down to that meal. Dipping a gooey grilled cheese in a hot bowl of tomato soup was the best to me. It didn’t matter to me, at least at that time, that the soup was from a can or the cheese really never melted, it was still comforting.
Eric Greenspan has proven his culinary cred with his restaurants
including the now shuttered Mare and The Foundry, as well as his
current enterprises The Roof on Wilshire and delivery only concepts
Chino, The B.E.C. and Brekkie Breakfast Burritos. But did you know
the man can do wild things with grilled cheese?
It all began when he wanted to make his food more accessible to a larger number of people. He started off by transforming his cheese plate into a sandwich, filled with taleggio cheese, raisin walnut bread, apricot caper puree, and beef short rib. This infamous sandwich has won many awards and has been dubbed The Champ.
Now, we all can experience The Champ and forty plus world class sandwiches in Eric’s new book The Great Grilled Cheese Book: Grown-Up Recipes for a Childhood Classic. You can’t help but fall in love with the Elvis (peanut butter, bacon, bananas) or lose your head over the Ichabod Crane (Camembert with pumpkin chutney and pumpkin seed). Roll in the crash carts because I’m going out in a blaze of Greenspan’s grilled cheese sandwiches and once you try his sandwiches you will want to join me.
