The Most Expensive Cheese Sandwich of All Time

Brits are very serious about their cheese sandwiches, and I guess us Americans can be too as long as they’re fried and surrounding a cheeseburger or include bacon in anyway. But one place you’d never expect to see a cheese sandwich, even in the U.K., is at a formal banquet table. Chef Martin Blunos’s $172 cheese sandwich, or a sandwich au fromage if you want to sound fancy, is a meal made for royalty.

Decked out with a drizzle of 100-year-old balsamic vinegar, slices of quail’s egg, heirloom black tomato, epicure apple, fresh figs, two slices of sourdough bread sprinkled with gold dust and of course the $140 white truffle cheddar cheese made specifically for the sandwich, this is one cheese sandwich you likely won’t be eating everyday.
