Cheese Shop Survey Results

Cheese Shop Survey Results

Over the Summer, I sent out requests for cheese shop owners to complete my “Cheese Shop Survey.” I was, and still am, curious how a successful cheese shop operates. Once I delved deeper into the grilled cheese world, I realized how interested and intrigued I am by all things cheese. Especially now with an ever […]

Cleveland.

cleveland.

I am a Clevelander. I was born in Cleveland. I live in Cleveland. I will have a family in Cleveland. I will die in Cleveland. I am a Clevelander. When everyone was leaving Cleveland as quickly as possible, I remained. When everyone was making fun of Cleveland, I remained. When everyone was counting Cleveland out, […]

American Cheese Month & Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

American Cheese Month Grilled Cheeses

If you hadn’t heard by now, October was American Cheese Month. Unfortunately, I was a little late to the party, my life was all over the place, but it doesn’t mean I didn’t celebrate. And celebrate I did. Thanks to Whole Foods, I was able to choose from their featured American cheeses (and the ingredients) […]

Sweet Dumpling Squash Grilled Cheese

Sweet Dumpling Squash Grilled Cheese

There is no doubt in my mind that Cabot knows how to promote their cheeses. Not only do they send new, free cheese on a regular basis, which is awesome in of itself, they also send little extras that make their package even more amazing. Recently, Cabot sent a package highlighting their new Farmers’ Legacy […]

Lou Bergier Pichin & Rustico Red Pepper Cheeses

Lou Bergier Pichin & Rustico Red Pepper Cheeses

Longer ago than I would like to admit, I was at my local Whole Foods shopping, when I stumbled upon the Tepin Chile. I love chiles and heat, as much as my body can take, but I had never heard of a Tepin Chile. Normally, the story would end there but then I discovered the […]

Everything Bagel Grilled Cheese

Everything Bagel Grilled Cheese

I must start this post with sincerest apologies to Cabot. I don’t even know when at this point, but Cabot sent me a pack of cheese, including their Everything Bagel Cheddar. Ever since, I had wanted to make an Everything Bagel Grilled Cheese. I was intrigued. I was seriously intrigued. Then, time got away from […]

Royal Cheddar Grilled Cheese

“Royal Cheddar” Grilled Cheese

Recently, I received an email from Whole Foods PR department with the subject of “A cheese worthy of a prince – Royal Addition One-Year-Old Cheddar at Whole Foods Market”. As usual, I just thought it was spam/a come on and nothing really worth reading. Out of pure curiosity, I skimmed the email and that is […]

My Visit to Lake Erie Creamery

My Visit to Lake Erie Creamery

When you visit a creamery, regardless of whether they milk their own animals or not, the last thing you think you will come into contact with is an old-time office building in the heart of an urban city. However, that is exactly where Lake Erie Creamery is located and they are more than making it […]

Moving On.

Moving On.

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but, promotion of my grilled cheese cookbook, Melt: 100 Amazing Adventures in Grilled Cheese, has officially ended. Honestly, promotion was basically over at the end of 2013, I just haven’t posted anything about it. Without a new sandwich to post, I felt like now was as good a time […]

Local Lunch: Lake Erie Creamery Croquis

Editor’s Note: Please make sure not to miss the other entries in the Local Lunch Series. As I have previously mentioned, the amount and quality of local, Ohio cheeses has increased exponentially. It is simply amazing how delicious the choices are, providing every variety you could ever desire. With that being said, I was disappointed […]
