Dining@Large: Top Ten Great Grilled Cheese Sandwiches - Baltimore restaurants: The dish on the restaurant scene, memorable meals, dining trends and more. When I said if I got enough suggestions under my post on elite grilled cheese sandwiches I would make a Top Ten list out of them, I never thought it would actually happen.

Dining@Large: Top Ten Great Grilled Cheese Sandwiches - Baltimore restaurants: The dish on the restaurant scene, memorable meals, dining trends and more

But here it is, with some help also from Midnight Sun Sam Sessa. I figure it's a good counterbalance to the effete snobbery of last week's Top Ten on great restaurant cheese plates. Take heart, Jonathan Gilbert and Donny B. (For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, you can find their comments under the previous Top Ten post.) Oh yes, and Trouble's under the breakfast sandwich post. Also, special thanks to Retired in Elkridge for making the suggestion in the first place, even though he had to drag me kicking and screaming because I didn't think any places around here were making elite grilled cheese sandwiches. PS: If anyone knows the name of the "hole in the wall" at the corner of Eastern Avenue and Haven Street with a great grilled cheese sandwich that Eve mentioned, please post below.

C’s for Caprese; it’s good enough for me: Grilled Caprese Sandwich After all the madness you’ve been seeing around here, I’m sure you can get behind me when I say that sometimes I just want simplicity: a crispy slice of toast, a perfect apple, an exquisite salad, simply dressed.

Pithy and Cleaver » C’s for Caprese; it’s good enough for me: Grilled Caprese Sandwich

In this month of excess, I couldn’t quite dial things back that far, but I got as close as I could reasonably manage while still sticking to the theme: I grilled a caprese salad. Insalata Caprese is a dish from the Campania region in southwestern Italy–its very name means “salad in the style of Capri;” fitting, since it makes me want to go sit in the sun somewhere with cropped trousers and a nice glass of prosecco. It is an ode to simplicity: three basic ingredients combined to pack a serious flavor wallop: fresh mozzarella, ripe tomatoes, and fresh basil. Dress is with a little olive oil, and you’re laughing.

Cakespy: Behemoth Crumb Cake. Jessie Oleson (aka Cakespy) drops by every Monday to share a delicious dessert recipe.

Cakespy: Behemoth Crumb Cake

—The Mgmt. [Original artwork and photographs: Jessie Oleson] When it comes to crumb, I have a theory: if some is good, more is better. This theory was proven when I discovered something called the Colossal Crumb Cake at New Jersey's Ocean Grove Bake Shoppe. Their version had a ratio of roughly 9 parts crumb to 1 part cake, and it was just as amazing as it sounds (theirs is the one pictured above). Could it be possible to recreate this magic at home? Turns out, halving the cake recipe wasn't necessary—using the full recipe worked just fine, as the weight of the crumb crushed it into a sliver of buttery submission.
