Savour the Taste Tour Grilled Cheese Edition

March 3, 2020

It’s time to experience a classic comfort dish in a whole new way.

The Taste Tour is back with its first event of 2020, and its first-ever feature of a Canadian classic – the grilled cheese sandwich.

The savoury 10-day event kicks off on Thursday, March 5th with eight different restaurants in Cornwall, serving up their own unique grilled cheese creations for you to enjoy.

The event runs until Saturday, March 14th, giving foodies plenty of time to try one – or all – of the tasty creations.

Best of all, the grilled cheese excursions will be supporting a good cause at the same time. For every grilled cheese sold at participating restaurants, $1 will be going to Beyond 21, a local organization that supports adults with developmental disabilities.

Build up your appetite and enjoy grilled cheese in a whole new way! Bon appétit! Read on for the entries.
