April is Grilled Cheese Month!
I already wrote a post about grilled cheeses but in honor of April being Grilled Cheese Month I just had to mention some grilled cheese happenings.....
On April 25 the Grilled Cheese Invitational will be held in Los Angeles. 300 competitors will vie for the Best Grilled Cheese in three categories: Missionary Position (only standard bread, butter and cheese), Kama Sutra (any kind of bread, cheese and additional flavoring ingredients) and the Honey Pot (any kind of bread, cheese and additional flavoring ingredients but the overall flavor is sweet).
L.A. restaurant Clementine will be celebrating Grilled Cheese Month all April with 25 different grilled cheese and a weekly special created by guest chefs such as Nancy Silverton (La Brea Bakery, Mozza), Amelia Saltsman (author of the Santa Monica Farmer's Cookbook) and Evan Kleiman (Angelli Caffe and host of KCRW's Good Food).
If you can't make it to Clementine (I know I won't even though soppresatta pepper jack with pickled Calabrian peppers on white corn rye bread from La Brea Bakery has my name on it) check out Pithy and Cleaver. They will be featuring different grilled cheese recipes all month and have started the celebration off right with Tomato Soup Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
