The $178 Cheese Sandwich
Chef Martin Blunos has created an opulent cheese sandwich with a costly price tag of $178 and is the main attraction at the Frome Cheese Show.
The high price is a result of cheddar cheese blended with white truffles (a rare and expensive type of fungus), a 100-year-old balsamic vinegar dressing, and sourdough bread topped with edible gold dust. The sandwich also features quail egg, heirloom black tomato, apple, figs, dainty mustard red frills, pea shoots and red amaranth.
The sandwich looks pretty delicious, though one can probably get a delicious cheese sandwich sans the sprinkling of gold for much, much less than $178.
