Matt Fish, northeast Ohio's grilled cheese sandwich connoisseur and the owner of the Melt Bar and Grilled restaurants, will appear on NBC's The Today Show next week.
He'll be on during the 9:45 a.m. segment on Friday, April 11, which just happens to be National Grilled Cheese Day, to chat about his signature sandwiches and to give a brief cooking demonstration.
Fish told Cleveland.com that he'll have just a few minutes to prepare sandwiches during the live recording and, as such, he plans to stick with a basic grilled cheese sandwich, or "The Kindergarten," as it's known on Melt menus.
This happens to be the exact same sandwich that Fish taught us, here at Scene, how to make back in the fall. (The secret to making the perfect grilled cheese sandwich, he said, is to brown the bread on both sides before adding on the cheese and then melting it into delicious gooey oblivion in a 400 degree oven.)
For more of Fish's tips of the trade, tune in to NBC next week.
