Industry News

Not much is really going on and there is a lack of work throughout the U.S. So here are some notes:

  Almost everybody today is cleaning and sealing tile and grout. The problem is that they are only giving a 6-month to a 1-year guarantee. With the Magic Al's sealer and the stone Pro sealers which I use, I have found these sealers to show the test of time.

  My long time clients and friends, Risa and Sam in Belmont have been using the Stone Pro's Crystal clean on their Sandstone entry and stairs for the last 4 years now and with the job we did on sealing it, it still has more life in it.  Risa is using the Magic Al's marble polish on there marble countertop and doing there own repairs now.

  Some people ask me why I named my Company ESP, well I have been working on environmental research since the 80's and using the right products and the correct cleaning procedures is why I can call the company Environmentally Safe Products and procedures.

This Month's Recipe... Fancy Grilled Cheese

Grilled Cheese
Dutch Grilled Cheese Gouda cheese, cumin, and caraway combine to produce a distinctive and flavorful sandwich with a taste that is reminiscent of the traditional Dutch Leyden cheese.
3 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 medium red onion (about 1/2 pound), thinly sliced
3/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
6 ounces best-quality medium-aged Gouda cheese, coarsely grated
8 slices bread of choice (sourdough is a winner!) 


In a large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over low heat. Add the onions and cook very slowly, stirring occasionally, until they turn a dark golden color, 30 to 40 minutes. If the onions begin to scorch, add about 1 tablespoon of water. Remove the onions from pan and set aside. Wipe the skillet with a paper towel, but do not wash it. (The onions can be prepared up to 6 hours in advance and kept covered at room temperature.)


Heat the same skillet over the medium-high heat. Add the cumin seeds and toast just until they become fragrant, about 3 minutes (watch carefully, they burn easily). Remove the seeds and let cool briefly. Do not wash the skillet. When the seeds are cool, crush them using a mortar and pestle. Or place them in a reasonable plastic bag and lightly pound with a mallet or the bottom of a heavy skillet. In a medium bowl, toss the crushed seeds with the cheese.


To assemble: Butter one side of each slice of bread with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Place 4 slices on your work surface, buttered side down. Distribute the cheese evenly over the 4 slices, followed by the onions. Place the remaining 4 bread slices on top, buttered side up.


Brush the grill rack with oil and preheat the grill to medium-high. Put the sandwiches on the grill(in batches if necessary), cover, and cook for 2 minutes, or until the undersides are golden brown and the cheese has begun to melt. Uncover, and turn the sandwiches with a spatula, pressing firmly to flatten them slightly. Cook for 1 minute or until the undersides are golden brown. Turn the sandwiches again, press with the spatula, and cook for 30 seconds, or until the cheese has melted completely. Serve immediately.
