Grilled Cheese Invitational

The Invitational lands in downtown Los Angeles, CA on April 25, 2009!


Doors open at 12:00pm
Competition from 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Admission Fee: $5
Competition Fee: $10

I am joining the event above as a competition's assistant.

our category:The Kama Sutra
The Kama Sutra sammich is any grilled cheese that is made with exotic bread or contains any other ingredients than the above mentioned.

The only rules to the Kama Sutra sammich are as follows: The sammich MUST be grilled and the internal ingredients must be at least 60% CHEESE. Other than that, this is a freestyle category, so go for it. This is where you can create any savory flavor concept your twisted mind will allow, so long as the internal ingredients are at least 60% cheese.

The Kama Sutra category is not only the most liberal, but also the most popular. So you must keep in mind that the competition is fierce and professional. You could be up against as many as 50 professional chefs, so you better get it right!

mm....sounds hard, but challenging. anybody give us a good idea?

This was one of the most poorly organized, disappointing events I've been to in some time.

1) The only food you could get was a cold corner of a grilled cheese sandwich from Kraft
2) There was ONE vendor outside SELLING grilled cheese sandwiches. OUTSIDE the event. With a 30 minute line.
3) There were NO signs explaining any of this.

And if you wanted to WATCH the cooking, the line was six deep to even see. Did NOBODY think to put it the action on platforms like in other public cooking events?

When I talked to some staff in t-shirts on the way out, what I got was "yeah we sold all our tickets earlier" and then not much else. So, to recap: you have NO food vendors IN the event. There were not enough tickets to give a TENTH of everyone who showed up more than a 1/4 kraft sandwich. And the communication was so bad that there was no way to figure any of this out until you'd been majorly disappointed by the whole thing.

Seriously, great idea but with the execution of the mentally disabled. Way to screw it up guys.

the event has been held for 7years, so they can do more than that. you should post their blog and tell them your anger:
