The Philadelphia Cheese Experiement cooks up excitement today

    In a city celebrated for a sandwich called the cheesesteak, The Philadelphia Cheese Experiment seems deliciously fitting.

    The event, hosted by The Food Experiments —a Brookyln-based series of amateur cookoffs, will happen today at World Cafe Live in West Philly.

    More than 20 local chefs will go head-to-head with their cheesiest dishes to compete for cash and a trip to Brooklyn to compete in the National Cook-off title at the Brooklyn Brewery, according to uwishunu

    The flavors will vary from sweet to savory, but you can bet the dishes will be a little more complex than boxed variety mom used to make.
