Easy Cheesy


An all-time classic sandwich like the grilled cheese brings out some surprisingly strong opinions on how it is best made and served. Some insist on eating their grilled cheese with a cup of tomato soup on the side. Or pickles. Or ketchup. Or all three (and there is simply no other way).
Has the humble grilled cheese achieved the ultimate comfort-food status? Perhaps. But we’re here to tell you that it’s okay to branch out, experience new grilled cheeses, and leave pickles out of the equation.

Try something new at Serious Cheese, a cheese shop/eatery on Bank Street in Old Ottawa South. It’s the perfect place to pick up a chunk of artisanal cheese and a fresh loaf of bread (how very Euro of us, we know).

But it’s the grilled cheeses that lured us there and will be bringing us back with slavish devotion. We had the “Cheese & Cheese” (made with Quebec Perron Cheddar and Ontario Thunder Oak Gouda) but you can have your grilled cheese with turkey or ham, too.
