If you fancy yourself an aficionado of all things grilled cheese, there’s only one place to be in LA this Saturday - The Grilled Cheese Invitational. Relocated this year to Los Angeles Center Studios, the event will be bigger than ever and already has us salivating. What’s even better, our new executive chef, Micah Fields, will go for the gold in the Hot Knives GCI Thunderdome. We’ve seen his recipes and trust us, they are medal worthy.
In the case you’re not a professional chef, here’s how it works. Competitors will vie for champion in one of four categories, ranging from the basic - Love, American Style - to chef’s choice - The Kama Sutra (savory) or The Honey Pot (sweet). A lucky few will sample, vote and ultimately select a winner in each group.
Not especially proud of your skills in the kitchen? You can still compete for the trophy in Cheese Calling or Cheesy Poetry or simply show up in your favorite festive duds all while trying your best to get your greasy paws on melty morsels of grilled cheese.
Registration for the main event is still open. Cheese you there!
