Not only does Coco's sell Lodge cast iron, we also use Lodge. The last US made cast iron cookware company, Lodge has been making frying pans since 1896.
Two things happened in the past week to change my grilled cheese sandwich making. First, I bought Mark Bittman's Kitchen Express as I was lured in by his pragmatic Minimalist columns in the New York Times. Second, fuji apples are on sale at Ralph's for .49 a pound. Bittman recommended adding apples to a gruyere grilled cheese sandwich and smashing it with a press. Perfect. Though I have often had apples with a grilled cheese sandwich, I never thought of putting them inside. Delicious! The apples stay crisp in the melted cheese.
In honor of the grilled cheese, Coco's is having a Lodge cast iron sale this week. Just use the secret code phrase "grilled cheese" and get 20% off your Lodge purchase!
