America for (Italian) Dummies #25

I have not written about food for a while and it’s time to catch up.

So… Grilled Cheese

another American Classic

Nonetheless, I am afraid, a great disappointment for your Italian friends.

But don’t take it bad, there’s a good reason behind their disappointment.

When you say Grilled Cheese, any Italian visualizes something like a good tomino grigliato (‘grilled tomino‘, a cheese from Piemonte, in Northern Italy)

Or a scamorza alla piastra (‘grilled scamorza‘, a sort of smoked mozzarella)

Or some provolone

or maybe a good pecorino

Hungry? Hungry indeed.

Well, now you can understand.
