The grilled cheese sandwich is sometimes referred to as the little black dress of sandwiches, and there’s good reason for that: it’s classic, it never goes out of style and it never lets you down. There’s something about the simple, yet unbeatable combination of buttery, toasted bread that is spilling ooey gooey cheese from the middle that has our hearts. Therefore, we’ve stuffed this eNewsletter with our favorite tips on making the perfect grilled cheese as well as a few recipes that add a punch to the old classic.

for the grilled cheese - using a rolling pin, flatten bread squares to 1/4 inch thickness. Place a cheese slice on top of each slice of bread, then roll up tightly. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, add roll ups to the skillet, cooking until all sides are golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 3-4 minutes, adding more butter as needed.


for the tomato soup -  Heat a medium saucepan over medium-low heat and add the butter. Add in the shallots and garlic, cooking until soft and slightly golden, stirring occasionally for 8-10 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for another 5 minutes. Add in the tomatoes, sherry, chicken stock, brown sugar, basil, salt and pepper, then bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes.


Transfer the soup to a high-powered blender and carefully blend until pureed or your desired consistency is reached. Transfer back to the pot over low heat. Right before serving, stir in the heavy cream. Taste and season additionally with salt and pepper if needed. To serve, garnish with freshly grated cheese and fresh herbs.

February was a "Month of Love" at our Guido's stores. Every Thursday during the month Guidos offered tastings, workshops and demos with their special products and local merchants. Live music from local muscians was also appreciated.

The Chef's Shop has satellite stores at both Guido's locations. We offer a wide selection of gadgets and tools for the kitchen, essentials such as cutting boards, salad spinners, knives, manual coffee brewers, Lodge Cast iron pans, and canning jars.

One Thursday, Clea demonstrated the Brod and Taylor Knife Sharpener, offering a free sharpening of a kitchen knife to interested customers. On another Thursday, Clea demonstrated the Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer, offering delicate vegetable hors d'oeuvres to customers.

We invite you to visit our Chef's Shop locations at Guido's in Pittsfield and in Great Barrington. You can find your favorite kitchen items at the same time as you shop for your dinner ingredients!
