Mo Rocca Gets Cheesy

"Mind-Blowing" Grilled Cheese from Food2.com

Whether you’re a full-fledged cheese snob or a wholehearted supporter of processed American, do not miss tonight’s new episode of Food(ography) at 9pm/8c. It’s a tasty one…

Mo takes us through the history of cheese and the cheese-making process. Then, chefs like Boston’s Barbara Lynch and Jon Shook from L.A.’s Animal restaurant show off some of the amazing things that they do with cheese.

My favorite use of cheese? Grilled cheese, of course, and it wouldn’t be a proper cheese episode without some discussion of the ultimate comfort food sandwich.

At Bin 36 in Chicago, they’re making one that would make any true cheeseophile swoon: It’s a three-cheese concoction made with Laura Chenel’s chevre, Pleasant Ridge Reserve and Fiscalini cheddar.

Halloumi Grilled Cheese at Rubi's Cafe on Food(ography)

Rubi’s Cafe in Great Barrington, Massachusetts keeps things a little simpler, but it’s still a far cry from the grilled cheese your mom made. They use Greek halloumi cheese on a baguette spread with lemon marmalade and grill it, wrapped in parchment, on a panini press.

We hear from a couple of foodies on the subject: Melissa Clark of the New York Times dining section likes fancy cheese in hers, while Salon.com’s Francis Lam defends American cheese.

In which camp do you fall?

Now you’ve been warned: Food(ography) tonight is going to make you hungry. Do yourself a favor and make grilled cheese for dinner. Browse our recipe collection for inspiration, or replicate Food2.com‘s Mind-Blowing Grilled Cheese (top photo).

Then, sated from your sandwich, tune in for more cheese at 9pm/8c on Food(ography).
