Mt. Washington Tavern's Grilled Cheese Cook-Off Raises $1K

Aged gouda cheese. Portobello mushrooms. Buttery italian bread. Sauteed onions. Look at any pictures from the Mt. Washington Tavern's 1st Annual Grilled Cheese Cook-Off, and you'll know - if you weren't there, you missed out on the best grilled cheese sandwich of your life.

Sunday's sold-out event raised over a thousand dollars for Moveable Feast services. Professional chefs and home cooks reinvented the idea of the typical grilled cheese sandwich by using gourmet ingredients in unique ways. Likewise, Moveable Feast continues to reinvent charitable food service ideals by constantly improving our meals to make them tastier, more nutritious, more personalized, easier to heat up, and more client-friendly. What better way to raise money for our mission to FEED people, FIGHT disease, and FOSTER hope?

The winners were:
  • Of the Professional Chef challenge: Kevin Miller of Widespread Concierge Services, who served up a tasty creation using 3 different aged cheeses on a brioche.
  • Of the Home Cook challenge: Michelle Howell, who made a delicious vegetarian grilled cheese masterpiece.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of this event, and special thanks to Mt. Washington Tavern for choosing us as their charity beneficiary.
