The millionaire's cheese sarnie

 A Michelin-starred chef has unveiled the world's most expensive cheese sandwich - which carries a whopping price tag of £110.
The delicacy was created by celebrity chef Martin Blunos, who hand-crafted the luxury snack using cheddar blended with expensive white truffles.
It is dressed with 100-year-old balsamic vinegar and the sourdough bread - which costs £5 alone - is sprinkled with powdered E175. That's gold dust to you and me. More banker's then ploughman's: The £110 cheese sandwich created by BBC TV chef Martin Blunos
The gourmet dish is the main attraction at the Frome Cheese Show in Somerset where the Food Poker star is judging a sandwich-making competition. Blunos worked with expert cheese-makers at local west country producer Pilgrim's Choice to create the special white truffle blend, which gives the sandwich its hefty price tag.
He said: "We Brits are known to love our cheese sandwiches, and here's one that not only comes with a royal price tag but is fit for the banqueting table. 'The white truffle fuses beautifully with the West Country Farmhouse Cheddar and the edible gold leaf gives it a really special look.'
'In fact, washed down with a bottle of Krug, what more could you want?'  
Blunos selected the highest quality ingredients to create the double-layered dish.
He worked with experienced cheddar producers at Pilgrim's Choice to create the bespoke white truffle cheese, which itself costs £92.
