As the author of the book Great Grilled Cheese (Stewart, Tabori Chang, 2004), Laura Werlin has probably, eaten, created, cooked, and promoted, more grilled cheese sandwiches than just about any sane person. Then again, the bookrsquo;s sales indicate that there are thousands and thousands of people who are clearly interested in making grilled cheese sandwiches as well.
When Great Grilled Cheese first came out, it was greeted with smiles and a nod to nostalgia. It was also greeted with a small degree of skepticism because some people were sure they didnrsquo;t need a recipe for a sandwich with just three ingredients. What they didnrsquo;t know was that the possibilities for making great grilled cheese sandwiches were endless. Whether on four wheels or between four walls, grilled cheese sandwiches are being fired up from coast to coast and taking the nation by storm ndash; again.
