This online cooking masterclass, exclusive to Planet Eat and presented by American Chef LC, is not just a masterclass on how to cook traditional, classic American food, but is also a celebration of the cuisine of the USA, its origins, storytelling abilities and the way it nourishes both body and mind.
In this episode learn how to make an elevated American Grilled Cheese Sandwich, on the stove. This particular (best ever) grilled cheese recipe is adapted for an adult tastebud using cashew butter, fig jam and gouda, whilst still bringing back those childhood memories. It's a super simple and easy grilled cheese to make, although still packed with a unique flavour. Enjoy any time of the day, or slice the grilled cheese sandwich into strips and serve as an appetizer.
LC is a chef and pupil of food who believes every dish tells a story. Her curiosity about foods and its history led her to study and cook foods around the world. Before donning her chef’s coat with classical training in the USA, she initiated her culinary training at the “school of mom” learning to appreciate and understand diverse ingredients, as well as the symbolism of cooking with love. After her training and education, LC continued her passion, working in professional kitchens and learning from great chefs from around the world (including a Top Chef and Michelin starred chef). If she isn’t creating, she can be found in a kitchen, market, or garden somewhere in the world continuing to research foods and techniques to share with friends, family, and fellow food lovers.
