A gooey good time: Toronto’s First Grilled Cheese Fest!

25 Feb

Can cheese be responsible for some of humanity’s happiness? At least a quarter of it, right?

And Fact no 120 was about how it's best when enjoyed between two pieces of bread.

Joylister is putting on a event this Friday at Roy Thomson Hall that will celebrate that that is grilled cheese, specifically all that is grilled cheese in YYZ. Joylister has a proven track record of taking our favourite comfort foods to the next level, adding alcohol and giving top billing to local chefs and businesses. Remember the fuss made over how Toronto Poutine Fest sold out? Well, there was cheese there too and it was run by the same people. And guess what? It looks like the Grilled Cheese fest is just as popular, but… there’s a waiting list!

If you’re one of the lucky few to have tickets to the event (like I am!) what do you have to look forward to?

 

1. A selection of the BEST Grilled Cheese sandwiches in YYZ

What would Drake say? So you a fancy grilled cheese, huh?

The local who’s who of Grilled Cheese will be there: Cheesewerks, Melt, Crème Fraîche and Gorilla Cheese to name a few. Want to know exactly what you will be getting? Check out the menu!

I am most excited to try the “General Kim” from Cut the Cheese. Why? Well, I am insistent that 2014 is the year of kimchi overtaking bacon, even if this sandwich has pork!

 

2. Pair your Grilled Cheese with soup!

Do you dip the sandwich and mix the flavours or do you enjoy separately? So many decisions!

Two winter staples that are best served together: grilled cheese and soup! Soup Nutzy and Zoup! will be providing the soups on site.

…What could possibly be missing?

 

3. BEER! 

I’m not a beer drinker myself (for shame!), but I’ve been told that Grilled Cheese, Soup and Beer are the trifecta of a true Canadian’s winter survival meal. Could it be true?

We will all gather together on Friday at 5:30 at Roy Thomson Hall to find out. I know I can’t wait.

 

Still not jealous?
This video just might make you sign up for the waiting list…
