We asked Bradley to describe his sandwich: “Often when I pair cheese with accoutrements; I hunt down a combination of salty and sweet. The contrast allows for me to find unique and interesting flavors that would be lost otherwise. I fell in love with the Guayeco Guava Jam the first time I tasted it, so I knew I had to use it on my grilled cheese. Fiore Sardo is a cheese that has a permanent place in my refrigerator at home, and Pastures is a cheese that I have been excited about since we received our first wheels in the shop. I am pleased to combine these flavors together to create a slightly sheepy, salty and sweet gourmet grilled cheese for you all to enjoy.”
Fiore Sardo – With a paste more golden than is usually found in sheep milk cheeses, Fiore Sardo has a hard natural rind that is banded by black wax. This semi-hard cheese is sharp and savory and the slightest shaving of it brings simple, olive oil-dressed pasta alive. This is one of those cheeses that is just as good to slice and eat as it is to use in your favorite dishes. Also, this cheese is very versatile for pairing and will match well with many white and red wine varietals.
