Day 662: Sunday Grilled Cheese

Wanting to relax on this Sunday and have a simple grilled cheese to go with a nice dark beer, perhaps like a pint of Brooklyn Brown Ale?

Grab a nice Sullivan Street Ciabatta, a hunk of Consider Bardwell's Dorset, some red seedless grapes, and a red onion. Dorset is a fabulous raw cow's milk washed rind cheese with a round creamy mouthfeel and a fantastic washed rind stink.

Slice two thick slices of ciabatta, in between place a hunk of Dorset and a few sliced red seedless grapes and a few slivers of red onion for an aromatic kick. The carbonation of the beer will cut right through the weightiness of the cheese and the sweetness of the grapes will find its bitterness in the beer. The rustic farmsteady-ness of the cheese will find its partner in the earthy malty notes of the beer. A sensory awakening grilled cheese for a relaxing Sunday afternoon.
