Fanshawe expert offers elevated twist on Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day

Tuesday, April 3, 2018, London, Ontario - Thursday, April 12 marks National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day.

Grilled cheese sandwiches are often at the top of the list for ultimate comfort foods. While melting cheese on top of bread has been around since Roman times, the modern version of the grilled cheese sandwich originated in North America in the 1920s. (source: days of the year )

James Smith is an award-winning chef and Fanshawe's chair of the School of Tourism, Hospitality and Culinary Arts. He is available to share tips on elevating the traditional grilled cheese sandwich using different ingredients.

"The grilled cheese sandwich is one where there is a version across many cultures," Smith says. "So many types of bread and cheeses, as well as condiments, can take you on a world tour of grilled cheese goodness."

Smith grew up on a dairy farm in rural Australia and has spent more than 25 years in the culinary industry. He pursued cooking after travelling to Toronto at age 20, where he fell in love with food after tasting Vietnamese fish pho at Kensington Market. He's worked with some of the industry's best chefs, including Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Christine Cushing and Anna Olson. Smith has also cooked at some of Toronto's most prestigious restaurants, such as Scaramouche, Truffles and Boba.
