Grilled Cheese Festival Preview: a sneak peek at 12 of the gorgeously gooey sandwiches available at Grilled Cheese Fest

Grilled Cheese Festival Preview: a sneak peek at 12 of the gorgeously gooey sandwiches available at Grilled Cheese Fest

When cold weather strikes, there are few things more comforting than a gooey grilled cheese sandwich. In recognition of this basic truth, Toronto start-up Joylister—the same team behind last summer’s wildly popular poutine fest—is hosting Grilled Cheese Fest 2014, the city’s first festival dedicated entirely to the classic after-school snack. On February 28th, the 19-plus event will bring dozens of the city’s top sandwich talents to Roy Thompson Hall, where they’ll be griddling gourmet variations on the bread-cheese-bread equation. For $40, attendees get bottomless bowls of soup, three samples of Creemore beer and all-you-can-eat sandwiches stuffed with inventive ingredients—everything from barbequed pork to Nutella. (You can purchase tickets online here.) We trekked across the city to bring you a sneak preview of the glorious, golden lineup. Try not to lick the screen.
