“Grilled cheese and tomato soup is the
ultimate comfort meal.” – Ina Garten
One of the best things about modern weddings is that they often incorporate the comfortable into the formal, the familiar with the traditional. Nowhere is this more evident than in the food served at most wedding receptions: From fun bite-sized dishes to comfort foods and even more exotic fare, wedding food and wedding desserts tend to be a highlight for many guests and it also reflects the couples’ shared traditions, goals, and approach to life. If there is one thing that “Barefoot Contessa” Ina Garten knows, it is how to host a party and, above all, how to make people feel welcome and comfortable.

Sparkling/White Wines that pair well
with a great Grilled Cheese
You want your ceremony to be beautiful, and the reception memorable. To do that, you will want to offer guests something new, something old, and a little bit of something out of the ordinary. We’ve kept that in mind while looking through the many, many food and dessert ideas that would bring all three. So, we narrowed it down to grilled cheese sandwiches that combined the exotic with the comforting and also looked at presentation as well as general tenor of the dish itself. Some of our favorite ideas include the peach bacon brie grilled cheese, chicken parmesan grilled cheese, and the decadent blackberry cheesecake grilled cheese sandwich. While a great grilled cheese stands alone, sometimes a great dip or a side dish can make it even more delicious – pickled vegetables, tomato sauce, salad dressing, soup, or chutney/jam. And, they all pair well with a great bottle of sparkling/white wine – Muscadet, Moscato Sparkling, Santa Rita 120 Sauvignon Blanc, Vinho Verde, White Chardonnay, just to name a few.
