Submit your grilled cheese recipe for the 1st ever, amateur iron chef competition

We're inviting all amateur chefs, home cooks, and foodies to showcase their culinary skills in our first-ever Grilled Cheese Showdown with the finale happening at the Iron Chef 2023 competition at Casino del Sol.

The Amateur Iron Chef is an entirely new event we've created to branch off the main event — the big cook-off between returning champ, chef Ken Foy of Dante's Fire takes on chef Devon Sanner of Zio Peppe on Saturday, July 22.

We want to hear your cheesiest, most innovative grilled cheese ideas! Whether you've got a secret ingredient or a unique twist on a classic, share your recipe with us by July 11.

Contestants will be confirmed by July 13.

If selected, you'll receive exclusive coaching and guidance from local cheesy chefs: Ken Foy and Devon Sanner. They will share their expertise, help you perfect your technique, and elevate your grilled cheese game to new heights!

Then, on Saturday, July 22, you'll step into the spotlight and showcase your grilled cheese creation in a thrilling head-to-head competition against another fellow amateur chef.
