We would love to hear your thoughts as to how to make the next GCI better!

This event is put on entirely with volunteer effort and a whole lot of sweat equity.  While we’ve spent a lot of time trying to make the event as best as it can be, there is always room for improvement and we’d love to hear your thoughts as to how and where we go from here.

The Grilled Cheese Invitational (GCI) is the largest, craziest, and most exciting Grilled Cheese cooking contest in the country and is the best thing to happen to sliced cheese since sliced bread! The GCI promotes an almost scary pursuit of perfection in a Grilled Cheese Sammich and allows for amateur and professional chefs to compete side-by-side in the hopes of becoming a true Grilled Cheese Champion.

The event was created by Tim Walker in 2003, in an artist loft in Downtown Los Angeles as a competition between friends and since then, has grown into a national movement dedicated to perfecting the art of grilled cheese, with thousands of cheese fiends and regional competitions across the country.
