What’s cooking :
Who doesn’t like a good grilled cheese sandwich? It’s astonishing the pleasure melted cheese in between bread can produce. However, in order to make such a simple dish exceptional you the need proper ingredients. A dense tangy sourdough is the perfect support for a full-bodied mature cheddar. Cut by the sharpness of onions the mouthful is heavenly, but beware, plain cheese toasties will be very dull after you’ve tried this recipe.
I’ve been making my cheese sandwich this way ever since I visited the Kappacasien stall at the Borough Market (the biggest food market in London). I was love-struck and dreamt about it for weeks afterwards. I assumed pestering customers have twisted their arm into giving out their secret as they’ve had the kindness of sharing their recipe with the world (you can find it here). I’ve modified it to fit me lifestyle as I rarely have 3 different types of cheese in my fridge or leek for that matter. But let me assure you that my version is close enough to give you real experience.
