Janice Beaton Fine Cheese has opened their grilled cheese bar in the store, featuring three sandwiches ($7.50) daily.
(They’re no longer doing the baguette sandwiches.)
This is the cheddar, oka, and tomato chile jam on bread from Manuel Latruwe. The sharp, nutty cheeses against the sweet jam was amazing. It’s really, really good especially for something different for lunch. It comes with some apple coleslaw and some pickles.
We got ours for takeout, but make sure it’s a short trip; otherwise, it’ll get cold and congealed.
The other choices that day were ham and cheese, and brie, greens, peppers and copa (a headcheese, I think).
Janice Beaton Fine Cheese, 1017-16th Ave. SW, Calgary, (403) 229-0900. The Grilled Cheese Bar is open during store hours, Sunday and Monday 10 a.m.–6 p.m., Tuesday to Friday 9 a.m.–7 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m.–6 p.m.
