The Grilled Cheese Invitational promises to be hot, sweaty and dripping with melted cheese. I love grilled cheese, so I wish I could be there. Here's more on Saturday's event at the Cornfield in Downtown L.A. from the Daily Dish. It's $5 entry fee to judge, but it kind of sounds like a free-for-all.
Both Farmer's Market cookbook ladies are getting together at the LA Times festival of books at UCLA on Saturday: Amelia Saltsman from the Santa Monica Farmer's Market cookbook and JoAnn Cianciulli from L.A.'s Original Farmers Market Cookbook are doing a cooking demonstration at 11 am on the Culinary Stage. On Sunday, Animal's Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook do a demonstration at 11 am, while Bon Appetit's Barbara Fairchild cooks at 2 pm and Giada De Laurentiis is interviewed by Fairchild at 3:30.
