{three} sheets to serve gourmet grilled cheese & wine dinner

{three sheets}

courtesy of {three sheets}

I love grilled cheese sandwiches. Unlike most people, I didn’t develop my fondness for grilled cheese until adulthood. This may have been due to the way they were prepared in my childhood home: Sunbeam white bread topped with Kraft singles and baked in the oven (sorry mom and dad). But now, having tasted a “real” grilled cheese, I adore them.

If you have a fondness for grilled cheese, you will love the new Grilled Cheese & Winner dinners at {three} sheets in Sandy Springs. On the third Tuesday of each month, they are presenting a five-course meal of assorted grilled-cheese sandwiches paired with wine for $30 per person. Below is the January menu:

  • Smoked gouda and chipotle cheddar on Holeman & Finch bacon-and-onion bread. Paired with Jacob’s Creek, Australia, Reserve Shiraz 2006
  • Manchego, compound butter of charred Bradford pear with Savannah Bee Company honey, and sliced Asian pears on Holeman & Finch sourdough. Paired with Little Chica, Spain, Tempranillo 2007
  • Brie on curry-buttered Holeman & Finch sourdough. Paired with Labouré-Roi, France, Chardonnay 2008
  • Grafton Village 2 year aged white cheddar, fig jam, Nueske’s Bacon on Holeman & Finch raisin bread. Paired with Trapiche, Argentina, Broquel Malbec 2008
  • Gruyere, prosciutto and whole-grain-jalapeño-honey-mustard aioli on Holeman & Finch Texas toast. Paired with Crusher, California, Chardonnay 2008

Each dinner is limited to 30 people and reservations are required. Make reservations online or call 404-303-8423. 6017 Sandy Springs Circle, Atlanta. $30.

In other news:

  • Café Intermezzo, an Atlanta fixture since 1979, is adding another metro-area location, which is scheduled to open the third week of January. Housed in the Courtyard by Marriott Boutique hotel, this Café Intermezzo will serve a similar menu to its sister locations. 6:30 a.m.-2 a.m. daily, including holidays, 141 Carnegie Way, Atlanta. $-$$.

Thanks for the memory! The Kraft cheese slice on white bread was better when grilled (with lots of butter) and don’t forget the side dish often served with the sandwich at the time—-pork and beans. Sounds fun to try “real” grilled cheese dinners at {three} sheets.

At my house we called that “cheese toast.” The best part was the way the cheese didn’t fully melt, but kept that sort-of film on top.

Five courses of grilled cheese and wine would put a cork in any other action that day. That’s a lot of cheese!

Pork and beans? We always had our grilled cheese with ‘mater soup! I’d LOVE to try this grilled cheese menu though!

Forget the Kraft cheese on cotton bread! Try making one with mozzarella. Adding sliced tomato and mayo really makes a great sandwich. That’s what I had growing up with a mother who came over on the boat from Italy!
