The 11th Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational

Description:

Welcome to the 11th Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational Registration! Below you will find the registration form. Please fill out all fields.

If you plan on competing in more than one category, you've got to register each sammich separately. NEW FOR 2013: There are only 3 heats, meaning you can only compete in a maximum of 3 categories.

The Registration Desk may need to contact you after you have completed your registration. PLEASE MAKE SURE THE EMAIL ADDRESS YOU HAVE PROVIDED IS VALID AND ONE YOU CHECK REGULARLY. Otherwise, you and your sammich may be left out in the cold. And nobody wants that.

We are sorry but registration for this event is now closed.

Please contact us if you would like to know if spaces are still available.

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.
