  Today's Special 

Gourmet Grilled Ham & Cheese with Wisconsin Swiss
Introducing a ham & cheese that’s, well, not really a ham & cheese. For starters, we use soppressata and prosciutto instead of ham, sourdough instead of regular bread, and a mustardy, vinegary, sweet, hot banana pepper sauce, lovingly known as Shasha. The kicker? Four slices of Wisconsin Swiss—for a Reuben/Croque Monsieur lovechild like no other. Get the recipe.

  • St. Louis chef sheds light on Midwestern food movement
    Chicago may be the culinary darling of the Midwest, but chefs in other cities, including Gerard Craft who owns four restaurants in St. Louis, are making a big impact in the modern Midwestern food movement. "I'm trying my best to connect the Midwest -- I think Chicago stands on its own, nationally, but I think we're all a little bit disconnected and we're not all that far from each other," Craft said. "You know, for the last ten years everybody's been cooking local, in a more regional style. ... And I think everybody should kind of look around and see that circle around them."

  • Food companies and parents must partner, first lady says
    First lady Michelle Obama praised food companies that are helping turn the tide on childhood obesity and urged companies to continue to work to make it easier for parents to make better food choices for their children. "It’s also about companies realizing that marketing healthy foods can be responsible and the profitable thing to do as well ... And American companies can play a vital role to help make eating fruits and veggies fun and, yes, even cool," she said during the the closing keynote speech of Partnership for a Healthier America's Building a Healthier Future Summit on Childhood Obesity last week.

    Japanese whisky used to be rare in the United States, but imports of the sweet spirit are on the rise as mixologists introduce it to curious bourbon-loving patrons. "It's a great introduction to single malt whisky," said Gardner Dunn, a brand ambassador for Japanese whisky-maker Suntory. "It's a little sweeter with a lot of honey notes to it."
