On Saturday after having grilled cheese for breakfast at the Planet Bakery.  I went into the cheese shop next door called “Chasing The Cheese“.  I didn’t catch her name but this wonderful lady served me.  I asked her to pick out three cheeses that is enough for 3 grilled cheese that I wanted to make at home using a fresh loaf of bread bought at the Planet Bakery.  I told her not to tell me which ones and that I will look at the sticker after I eat them.

She liked the idea and thought about two selections and asked Julie the owner for the 3rd one.  I was excited and paid for my purchases and went home.  When it was time to get it going the three cheeses were opened and numbered and I made them one by one and tried each one.  I rated each one and after it was over… I looked at the labels to see what each one was.

I was told that I needed to add Roasted Red Peppers with one of them and Sauteed Onions to the other.  I forgot to purchase a nice Salami for the 3rd one.  The wonderful lady who served me wrote on the packages which ones I would add the extras.

This was was the best grilled cheese I have ever eaten.  It was like eating French Onion Soup in your hand.  It was so good.  Clearly the winner of the day.  Fuck this was good!  Highly recommended.

Grilled Cheese #3:  Cheese = Brebirouse D’Argental | France | Salami suggested and forgotten.

Thanks to the two super helpful ladies of Chasing The Cheese on Water St.  I will be back.  I love grilled cheese and it’s awesome to go out and try some new ways to enjoy such a classic lunch that has span over my lifetime.

Eat Me Tuesday | Mini Persimmon + Brie Cocktail Hour Bites

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

Persimmon is so yummy I sliced them into wedges and made these little appetizer sandwiches, which people seemed to really like! You could use any kind of cheese, really…but do make sure you choose Fuyu persimmons (the tomato looking ones). If you can’t find persimmons, you could also use pears or apples. This is an easy cocktail hour snack to serve before dinner, and can easily be made ahead. Enjoy!
