2006 – The 3rd 2nd Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational!

The 3rd 2nd Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational saw the event move to a newer, larger, more undisclosed location in downtown Los Angeles, America.  Due to several arguments with our draconian lords of the land, we were forced to cease holding events at our previous location.

So the GCI packed up all of its grills and spatulas and drove about 3000 feet down the street and set up the cheese at our new, smashing digs.

The results?  Victorious!  As with the previous GCI, the attendance and number of competitors doubled as word of mouth regarding this event spread throughout the Los Angeles underground.  We even made friends with several on-duty LA DWP utility workers and employees of Union Pacific.

About

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.
