Chef Michael Howell from Nova Scotia takes top honours
TORONTO, Aug. 24 /CNW/ - Dairy Farmers of Canada today announced that Panini
Toscano has been named Canada's "gratest" grilled cheese. Chef
Michael Howell of The Tempest restaurant in Wolfville, Nova Scotia stole
the show with his delicious creation at the Grate Canadian Grilled
Cheese Cook-Off, which saw top chefs from across Canada put their spin
on this classic Canadian favourite.
The winning grilled cheese combined the flavours of figs, prosciutto,
arugula, and Canadian Gouda cheese from Fox Hill in Nova Scotia.
The Grate Canadian Grilled Cheese recipes created especially for this
competition included: "The Spicy Shrimp" and "Chef
Corbin's Best Ever" from Chef Corbin Tomaszeski of Holt's Café
in Toronto; "Cheddar Your Wagons" and "Curry Me Brie"
created by Chef Paul Rogalski from Rouge restaurant in Calgary; "French
Toast Grilled Cheese" and "Barbequed Ham Grilled Cheese" from
Chef Melissa Craig of Bearfoot Bistro in Whistler; and "Panini
Toscano" and "Dark and Stormy" submitted by
Chef Michael Howell of The Tempest in Wolfville.
"Canadians are sure to be inspired by these incredible grilled cheese
creations," said Chef Michael Howell. "This wonderful Cook-Off and my
fellow chefs have all shown us that making a winning grilled cheese
sandwich is simple - all you need is bread, your favourite Canadian
cheese and some imagination."
The winning grilled cheese sandwich was chosen by a jury of Canada's top
food writers: Rita DeMontis, Lucy Waverman, and Corey Mintz.
The Cook-Off was organized by Dairy Farmers of Canada to take the
grilled cheese sandwich to a whole new level and showcase the
outstanding quality, variety, taste and versatility of Canadian cheese
made from 100% Canadian milk. Cheese lovers across Canada can receive a
