Last night I was invited to a cooking event for LiveSoma hosted by Tillamook Cheese and The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen. We watched some live demos on how to make grilled cheese and learned some key tricks of the trade. We were then given the task to create our own combinations which would later be judged. Although I didn’t win the competition, I had a lot of fun experimenting with new ingredients and testing out my newly owned skills.

It is always great to get out into the community to meet with local business owners and fellow bloggers. Here are some highlights of the evening:
