***UPDATE 6/23/2018***

Getting good mileage out of the mac n cheese recipes. I'll forego the heavy cream and torn bread bits, still taste splendid. I have a good feeling about their soups and will have to try next.

Me and my boyfriend would always make grilled cheese and tomato soup on lazy weekends ... or lazy weekday nights. I purchased this cookbook for my boyfriend as a Christmas present, although we have not been to Grilled Cheese Kitchen in San Francisco before.

An ultimate comfort food! I loved some of the combinations of sandwich layers. They included great soups in this book as well. My favorite section is at the back with recipes for spreads for many of the sandwiches. There is also a section of Mac & Cheese recipes that will interest anyone. A fantastic wintertime staple cookbook. Love for your tummy...................

If you love cheese, and who doesn't, then this book is for you! The first half is just variations of grilled cheese sandwiches, the second half is made up of soup recipes and recipes for mac n cheese. It's fabulous. The only reason this book didn't get 5 stars is because there's a total of 24 pictures in the recipe portion of the book. And a couple of those are pictures of ingredients, sitting on a counter in bowls, looking pretty. I want to see ooey gooey toasted bread! Yes, I know what a grill ...more

Can't wait to try these!

Wow! An amazing assortment of grill cheese deliciousnessl. Really want to make that grill cheese birthday cake! From simple to more complex recipes, they all sound meltingly wonderful. Great sounding side and soul recipes as well. I hope I get to go to one of their restaurants someday, but in the meantime, I cant wait to make them myself. Great directions, clearly written. Seems all doable. And delicious.

I was super excited about this book. However, great concept, big let down. There are maybe 10%pictures in this book, not everything is a grilled cheese idea, and many of the recipes had a stupid amount of ingredients for what it is. The first bit of the book was pretty good even without the pictures but the big last part was just ... I could do without.

I'd use this more for the Mac&Cheese recipes. I really loved making the Chevre, White Wine, Garlic recipe in general. Still have more testing to do, but it does what sets out to do. A niche book that covers its niche well.

Received as part of a Humble Bundle.

Somedays you just need a good grilled cheese sandwich and if you are looking for ideas that go beyond the usual then this is a great place to start. The book also covers how to cook several sandwiches at once if you are making them for a group of people. Soups are also covered and they offer pairing ideas of what goes well with each soup. A fun cookbook for someone wanting to try out their new sandwich press or just get out of the rut of the usual grilled cheese.

If the pictures and descriptions don't have you salivating, I don't think I want to know you! No, but seriously, bread and cheese is life. Oh, and can we talk about how Heidi Gibson, the author of the cookbook and the co-owner of the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen, has won multiple trophies at the Grilled Cheese Invitational? I mean, who even knew that existed? I need to go. Anyways, I want to let you know that I really do love me some grilled cheese sandwiches and I cannot wait to try out most ...more

Some great ideas for grilled cheese sandwiches in here, along with mac & cheese, and a few sandwich spreads/ relishes. A few use ingredients that would require mail-ordering (not worth the expense for me), and others require more preparation time than the typical grilled cheese. But the majority use readily-available ingredients, and the recipes sound delicious, so perhaps the extra time is worth it. Looking forward to exploring the world of grilled cheese sandwiches.

I wasn't familiar with the Grilled Cheese Kitchen restaurants in California, but after checking out this cookbook I hope I can go there some day. Who doesn't love a good grilled cheese?! The authors give not only grilled cheese recipes, but also recipes for soups and sides that work well with grilled cheese, and homemade condiments like pickles and spreads. Overall, it looks like a really yummy cookbook and if you're a fan of cheese at all you need to check this one out!

I wouldn't make most of these sandwiches. I guess I'm more of a purist or just too damn lazy to mess with so many extra ingredients. The soups and some of the salads sound pretty great though and I'd be more inclined to try those.

This book is ridiculously wonderful. We had a grilled cheese party on a football Sunday and everyone loved it. Not for those with cardiac issues.
