Grilled Cheese Invitational 2014

On Saturday, Fresh St. Market in West Vancouver hosted the second Grilled Cheese Invitational Grill Off. Five chefs competed for the public's vote for best grilled cheese sandwich. For only $5, we got to sample five types of grilled cheese sandwiches accompanied with a drink. All the proceeds went to help the JGL Foundation for Cerebral Palsy. Good food for a good cause - always a win-win!

Fresh St. Market staff were being dunked in the dunk tank to raise money.

Terra Breads' grilled cheese featured their sourdough bread, havarti cheese, gruvere cheese, asiago cheese, sea salt & butter served with a dollop of Terra Breads ketchup. I liked this one.
 Team GFS was more of a chicken sandwich than a grilled cheese one. I couldn't really taste the cheese.

Team Food Freaks added a meat ball on top of their grilled cheese.

Team Cheese It, the Cops are Here did a simple grilled cheese, with an added twist - BBQ smoked salmon! Villagio White Italian Bread, BBQ tips smoked salmon, asiago cheese, mozzarella cheese and butter. I really liked theirs; I voted for them.

Team Fresh Chefs had some cheddar cheese, fontina cheese, and meats on a rosemary and olive oil bread. 

 We also got to choose any Jones drink - I choose root beer! Delicious!

In the end, Fresh Chefs won and took home the golden spatula - the second year in a row!

The Grilled Cheese Invitational is a fun family event, the grilled cheese was delicious, and there were samples of cheese and other goodies throughout the store. If you haven't gone to this event, it's worth a trip! I hope to see this back again next year.
