We teamed up with our friends at The Real Dill to create this over-the-top grilled cheese recipe, made with their pickle-infused Bloody Mary Mix and Habanero Horseradish Dill Pickles. Loaded with our organic, meltable Wagon Wheel Cheese and herbed Fromage Blanc and crusted with Bloody Mary Spice, this decadent grilled cheese is spicy, savory, oozy, and deeply satisfying.
In celebration of l'heure de l'apéro (cocktail hour), we caught up with fashion designer and author of "A Table: Recipes for Cooking and Eating the French Way" to chat about hosting, entertaining with cheese, and the secrets to the French bar and table.
