|Cheesewerks Artisan Grilled Cheeses|
Cheesewerks opened its door to the Media this evening and one by one, selections for their Menu were presented and few could resist. Various selections made the rounds, including:
Balderson Aged and Double Smoked Cheddars, grilled on signature Cracked Peppercorn Sourdough
Jalapeño Jack, Braised Beef Brisket, House-made BBQ Sauce, grilled on Marble Sourdough
Havarti, Smashed Avocado, Arugula, Citrus Compote, grilled on Angeligus Sourdough
Swiss, Spiced Pastrami, Pickled Red Cabbage, Grainy Mustard, grilled on Whole-Grain Rye
BEIJINGAsiago, Chinese BBQ Pork, Hoisin, slivered Green Onion, grilled on signature Green Onion Potato Bread
Hands-down, my favourites were the Houston - myself a huge Fan of Brisket - and also the Beijing which reminds me somewhat of a Peking Duck Wrap with dominant flavours of Hoisin and Green Onion. Douangmixay tells me, "We tried doing this one with Duck but unfortunately keeping the skin crispy was a challenge". And we all know how important it is for that skin to be crispy! The Chinese BBQ Pork nonetheless is a fitting substitute. I even noticed the Toronto - Koreatown Slider on the Menu which combines Kimchi (Pickled Korean Cabbage) together with Gruyere.
Cheesewerks opens its doors on Friday, December 16, 2011 and if you line-up before 2:00 PM, you will receive a free Original Grilled Cheese!
