Grilled Cheese: Traditional and Inspired Recipes for the Ultimate Toasted Sandwich (Ryland Peters & Small, Aug. 2014) goes above and beyond your average sandwich. Author Laura Washburn was born in California, trained in Paris, and lives in London, giving this book about the American classic a decidedly global flair. Yes, there are instructions for plain cheese sandwiches, but you’ll also find recipes for kimchi grilled cheese and a paneer and tandoori chicken sandwich. Starting with the fundamentals before moving on to what we’ll call extreme grillies (sign us up for the BBQ pork with mac ’n’ cheese, please!), this guide has everything you need to amp up your grilled cheese game.
