Bread and cheese – it’s a classic combination in many cultures. Ben and Jen Sandler at The Queens Kickshaw certainly know this, evident in their amazing and popular grilled cheese sandwiches. Chef Darren Loveless certainly knows the power of bread and cheese as he crafts delicious panini and crostini at Il Bambino (the guys over at Forking Tasty like them, too – check out their video) And then there’s the amazing queso taco made by the friendly staff at La Cabana that is essentially bread and cheese. We could go on and on (and nom and nom).
Yet another twist on the bread and cheese combo is to bake the cheese into the dough, form it into a little rounds and bake them into buns. Two excellent examples of this approach are the Brazilian pao de queijo (which translates into “cheese bread”) and the Colombian pandebono (which translates into “good bread”).
