The world's most expensive cheese sandwich

The world’s most expensive cheese sandwich has been on display at the Frome Cheese Show in Somerset. Celebrity chef Martin Blunos is the man behind the £110 creation. He worked with local cheese producers Pilgrim’s Choice to come up with the white truffle blend that accounts for much of the sandwich’s hefty price tag.  Here’s the full breakdown of the sandwich’s cost:

White truffle – £92.00
Heirloom blacktomato – £1.51
100-year-old balsamic vinegar £2.25
Pea shoots – 60p
Red mustard frill – 55p
Red amaranth – 55p
2 x fresh figs – £1.36
Epicure apple – 34p
Sourdough loaf – £5.00
Extra virgin olive oil – £1.60
Quail eggs – £1.53
Edible gold dust – £4.30

    Surely just as much a publicity stunt as stand up seats on a Ryanair flight? Would a gastronome eat a white truffle in a sandwich? I have had few reports that gold tastes great.
    I’m sure that if anyone wanted to prove that they were so wealthy, that buying a sandwich like this was like bread and butter to them, could instead, save a few hectares of rainforest from destruction instead?

    I believe gold doesn’t actually taste of much but it supposedly cleanses the palette.

    ouch! i am quite happy with a plain old cheddar cheese and happy for a touch of mayo, obviously i would be a cheap date!
