London is holding it’s first ever Grilled Cheese Championships in Camden

Get ready for the first Grilled Cheese Championships!

The Cheese Bar in Camden is hosting a one-day Grilled Cheese event on 14 September 2017!

Mathew Carver, who founded street-food pop up The Cheese Truck in 2014 before opening his first permanent restaurant, The Cheese Bar, at Camden Stables Market earlier this year, has invited five of London’s best to put their stamp on grilled cheese during the inaugural event.

On the menu is Josh Katz and Mattia Bianchi from Middle Eastern Berber & Q, Harneet Baweja of East London’s Gunpowder, Decatur’s Tom Browne, a specialist in Louisianan goods, founders of Pizza Pilgrims James & Thom, and Head Chef of taco experts El Pastor, Tomasz Baranski.

The event will see the five foodies battle against Mathew by pitting their signature styles against each other.

And, it’s all being held to raise awareness and vital funds for Help Refugees UK. Oh, and anything goes… But there is one rule, the cheese must be British, since The Cheese Bar’s philosophy is to champion Britain’s best.

You can enjoy a grilled cheese set menu priced at £20, including any beer and any glass of wine. Bookings will be available for two or more people from 6pm on 14 September 2017 via

Visit The Cheese Bar at Unit 93 and 94 Camden Market, North Yard, Chalk Farm Road NW1 8AH.

You bring the rum, I'll bring the raspberries. Perfect daiquiris all round.
