Jimmy V’s Osteria + Bar Puts Their Grilled Cheese Title on the Line at Cheese Please!
RALEIGH, NC (June 22, 2016) – The Downtown Raleigh Alliance is excited to host Cheese Please! at the Raleigh Downtown Farmers Market in City Plaza on Wednesday, June 29 from 10 am – 2 pm.
Cheese Please! is the Market’s fifth annual celebration of all things cheese. The highlight of the event is a friendly grilled cheese cook-off among downtown Raleigh chefs. Each chef will concoct his or her own version of the classic grilled cheese sandwich in hopes of being crowned “Cheese Champ,” making Cheese Please! a favorite day at the Market each year. Chef Clay McClinnham from Jimmy V’s Osteria & Bar is putting his title on the line against Chef Michael Rigot from Rye Southern Bar & Kitchen, Chef Amanda Haisley from Buku, Chef Andrew Klamar from Linus & Pepper’s, and Chef Gregg Hamm from P.G. Werth’s. Marketgoers will be able to sample each of the chefs’ creations and vote for their favorite.
The competition will take place from 11:45 am – 1 pm.
As always, the Market will host a variety of regular vendors, including North Carolina farmers, ranchers, nurserymen, bakers, specialty food producers, and craftsmen.
The Market runs every Wednesday through September 28. For more information, please visit www.RaleighEatLocal.com.
