Congratulations to Dallas C, the youngest winner ever of the 5th Annual Tillamook Cheese Factory Grilled Cheese Cook-Off! Dallas is an 11 year-old from Aloha, Oregon that wowed the judges with his “Melty Mook” grilled cheese. It wasn’t an easy win, with fellow contestants, Brandon Affolter’s “Smokey Cilantro Melt” and Joshua Waite’s “Baked Potato Grilled Cheese” in the running. Dallas, Brandon, and Joshua were all selected as finalists in our contest for the search for the best tasting, most cheesiest grilled cheese.


Each finalist joined us at the Tillamook Cheese Factory to put their recipes to the test for a panel of judges in a live cook-off event on April 18th. In the end, Dallas was crowned the winner and walked away with a $500 prize and a goodie basket filled with his favorite cheese!
