It’s amazing what an imagination can do, and Kim Wilcox has used hers well to create an excellent cookbook on grilled cheese, Great Book of Grilled Cheese: 100+ Recipes for the Ultimate Comfort Food, Soups, Salads, and Sides Cookbook - Delicious Sandwiches, Toasties, and More with Simple Ingredients. Grilled cheese is a universal comfort food, and almost everyone makes them when time is short. But Wilcox takes the lowly grilled cheese to amazing heights, and transforms grilled cheese sandwiches into mouthwatering delights that will appeal to everyone. Also included in this fun cookbook are sides, such as soups, salads, toppings, condiments, and even desserts (there is even a Chocolate chip Cookie Dough grilled cheese made with chocolate chip brioche and cream cheese- Yum!)
Most of the recipes have minimal ingredients, and are easy-to-follow. These recipes can be made by chefs with skills ranging from beginning to advanced, and the beautiful photographs will tempt everyone to make grilled cheese much more often than usual. One of the best parts is the prose which is well-written and covers the history of grilled cheese (who ever thought about its origins – it’s seems to have always been there), as well as basics and cooking equipment and utensils needed to make the best grilled cheese ever.
Many of the recipes include meats and condiments, and the author has included several ways to make the outside crisp, cheesy, or crunchy. This is one of those cookbooks that is going to be used often and belongs on the cookbook shelf of every home. Even food snobs and gourmands will enjoy this book (although they may not admit it). Grilled cheese is a universal American iconic food and this cookbook will help to expand the ways all of us eat it. Fun! Fun! Fun!
