Our Grilled Cheese Invitational prizewinner.: a judge's award, the first-place spaz award and third-place amateur Kama Sutra.

 

Grilled halloumi with squid-ink chèvre, caramelized onion, mint-pistachio sauce and octopus confit we made in a crock pot plugged into the rental car's cigarette adaptor on the drive down to Pasadena.

With a lusciously chewy bite, this dense raisin pumpernickel elegantly holds braised beef, parmesan and slices of smoked Gouda. A sophisticated on a savory combination.

Served up by an enthusiastic duo, the "Nuts of Wonder" came flying off the grill filled with sweet cheese and an unexpected bite. The sliced baguette is fried in butter, brown sugar, and crushed almonds with a filling of brie, goat cheese, spiced dates and Nutella. But what was that bite lingering in the back of the throat? Horseradish cheddar!

Grilled Cheese Invitational 2011

Today ended up being full of lots of walking. I started off at the 2nd Annual NorCal Regional Grilled Cheese Invitational at Dolores Park. See more at:

We got there early and donated $2 a piece for wristbands to be judges. Overall, the event was fun but I wish I was competing and not just a judge. The system for dispersing samples to be judged could have been run much smoother. I tried a sandwich in the Kama Sutra category with cheese, mustard and fried egg that was pretty good. All we could talk about was how we'd prepare our sandwiches next year.

 

Next, tapas lunch at Picaro, followed by Cardamom rose ice cream down the street. Then, we walked down to Market and visited this great art store, Flax. After that we walked all the way to Castro and enjoyed some sangria and conversation. Finally, we took the Muni back downtown, walked some more and enjoyed desert crepes in the mall. It was an awesome random day but I was so relieved to take my shoes off when I got home!
