Okay, so not only is April my birthday month, but it’s also National Grilled Cheeserie Month! Okay so it’s really just National Grilled Cheese Month, but it really should be National Grilled Cheeserie Month!
Nashville favorite, The Grilled Cheeserie, will be celebrating with a “Grilled Cheese Picnic” on April 12th which is the Official National Grilled Cheese Day!
From Noon – 4 PM at Richland Park (4601 Charlotte Pike – by the picnic shelter), The Grilled Cheeserie alongside friends Retro Sno and Porter Road Butcher Pastry will be dishing out some delicious nostalgic treats that go along with their theme of “Keep It Classic”. Chef and co-owner, Crystal De Luna-Bogan says “It’s going to be good ol’ fashioned fun!”
“We are Nashville’s only grilled cheese truck and want to represent our city by celebrating the simplicity of what a grilled cheese is: bread, butter, and most importantly cheese, by using the best the South has to offer” says co-owner Joseph Bogan.
“Keeping true to our culinary approach, we’re going to source the best productsour region has to offer. In addition to using our usual bread baker, Silke’s Old World Breads, The Bloomy Rind is going to help us procure cheeses from the South’s best creameries. We asked them what their favorite “melty” cheese was and they were really excited to recommend a variety of amazing cheeses. We’re excited to celebrate our southern creameries the entire month of April (National Grilled Cheese Month) by featuring simple, amazingly melty grilled cheeses paired with our homemade classic tomato soup” said De Luna-Bogan.
The Grilled Cheeserie is also asking their fans and loyal customers to hashtag their love for grilled cheese and photos using the hashtag #grilledcheese2014. The Grilled Cheeserie is coordinating with grilled cheese trucks all around the country to utilize that hashtag, creating one feed for National Grilled Cheese Month.
Each week in April they are also featuring a different regional creamery and cheese:
April 1-6: Kenny’s Farmhouse (Kentucky) – “Kentucky Rose & Monterey Jack”
April 7-13: Sweetwater Valley Farm (Tennessee) – “Italian Pesto Cheddar”
April 14-20: English Farmstead (North Carolina) – “Buttercup”
April 21-End of the Month: Sweet Grass Dairy (Georgia) – “Thomasville Tomme”
